Jan Steen (1626 – 1679)
Detail: food, baker, bread, buns, manchet, pretzel, pretzel hanger, workman, work cap, boy, horn, bread rack, store front, peel
Excellent detail, especially the fly opening having no closure & relying on the long under-shirt to conceal the lower body parts.
Reblogged this on If I Had My Own Blue Box: and commented:
I’ve had hot, soft pretzels on the mind for a couple weeks already. Seeing this painting makes me want to make some. What a perfect warm treat on a cold fall evening. Yum!
I’m also curious about the bread held up and in the basket. They look concave. I wonder what those are.
