The Guardhouse (1640-1650). By David Teniers the Younger. Oil on canvas, 72.6 × 55.4 cm. Here soldiers play cards in the dim interior of a guardhouse, while a page carries the officers’ cloaks. However, the chief subject of the work is the pile of discarded armour, weaponry, and parade gear, a saddle, musket, powder horn, charging spanner, and gauntlets, in the immediate foreground. In treating armour as a still-life subject, Teniers followed the precedent of Jan Breughel the Elder, whose daughter he had married. #art #artist #classic #classicalart #lagra _art #artistsoninstagram #instaart #instaartwork #artists #painting #paintingsdaily #dailyart #oilpainting #oilart #drawings #sketchbook #likelike #classicart #oiloncanvas #artlover #oilpaints #italianart #conterporaryart #impressionistart #oilportrait #classicalrealism #portraitstudy #artistsoninstagram #instaart #instaartwork #artists #painting #paintingsdaily #dailyart #oilpainting #oilart #drawings t #drawings #heartit #sketchbook #likelike #classicart #oiloncanvas #artlover #oilpaints #italianart #conterporaryart #impressionistart ionistart #arthistory
