A Woman scouring a Pot

A woman in an interior, perhaps a kitchen, scours a pot on top of a barrel.

The attribution to van den Bosch is based on comparison with a signed picture of the same subject in Berlin (Staatliche Museen, Gemäldegalerie). The picture has also been attributed to Pieter Slingeland. It shows the influence of Gerrit Dou and can be dated on grounds of style to the 1650s.
