Two Men playing Cards in the Kitchen of an Inn
David Teniers the Younger

A man deals cards at the table. Two men, a boy, and a woman looking down from a window, watch the game. At the left a man urinates, while in the right background a woman cooks over the fire, surrounded by four men.

The panel has on the reverse the monogram of the Antwerp panel-maker Michiel Vriendt, who died in 1636. The picture was probably painted at about that time.
