Adriaen van Ostade: The violinist, 1673, oil on panel, 45 x 42 (17.7 x 16.5 in), Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, The Hague, Netherlands #AdriaenvanOstade #Art #Paintings #Painters #Arthistory #Dutch #GoldenAge #pittore #pittura #pintor #pintura #peintre #peinture #historyofart #artista #dutchart #Maler #Malerei #genrepainting #vanostade #masters #DutchGoldenAge #interior Here, in the painting we see a group of people are gathered in front of a simple house that seems to be a country inn. The atmosphere is one of gaiety, for an itinerant violinist has come to the door to play a tune, accompanied by the boy in the red jacket who plays the hurdy-gurdy. The music is enjoyed by young and old alike. In the middle of the picture, a man sits on a bench, his legs wide apart, holding a tankard of beer. In the doorway, a woman leans on the lower half of the door and two men look out, trying to catch a glimpse of the musicians. Some children hang about outside, enjoying the excitement. A tousled girl steadies a child wearing only one shoe, and a little boy makes contact with a dog.
