About this artwork

Adriaen van Ostade was a prolific Haarlem painter and etcher of genre scenes that ranged from illustrations of raucous peasant feasts to depictions of working class family life. As an etcher, he was second only to Rembrandt van Rijn in his productivity and the collectability of his work; his prints range from the antic Merrymakers in an Inn (1894.1028) to the calmer Woman Spinning. Even the pigs at the bottom left of this image are lazy observers of the peaceful scene.
