Old Peasant with Jug – Mieris 1731

Posted by on March 13, 2012

MIERIS, Frans van, the Younger
(b. 1689, Leiden, d. 1763, Leiden)

This painting, while it might not have as many objects still has items of great interest.   I am especially drawn to the shirt collar and the waistcoat detail, the small brass buttons. Of course the jug is great, interesting large opening.  Knives can be a bit tricky to really nail down at times and this knife, although we can’t see the tip, gives us some good information.

Details:  fur cap, mallet bottle, shirt collar detail,  waistcoat and buttons, jacket, bellarmine jug, redware plate, ham, wood handled knife.
