Smokers and Drinkers
Oil on panel. 1652
Teniers The Younger, David

Three figures enjoy tobacco in an expressive manner in the foreground while an onlooker leans through the window. Around a table in the background, another group of figures drinks or plays cards. This is an example of scenes inside taverns with smokers, drinkers and players, which Teniers made during the sixteen thirties. He began with figures by his teacher, Adriaen Brouwer (1605/1606-1638), whic

The King drinks
Oil on copperplate. 1650 - 1660
Teniers The Younger, David

This work depicts the feast of Epiphany, as can be seen by the crown on the central figure, whose paintings show an Adoration of the Magi. According to Flemish folk tradition, in this feast, the king of the celebration is chosen by chance, being the one who finds a bean in his cake. Other Flemish artists, such as Jordaens, depicted this celebration in the same way, reflecting its most festive mome

The Archery Contest
Oil on panel. Ca. 1645
Teniers The Younger, David

A group of villagers pass the time by testing their aim with a bow. One shoots at the target placed in the ruins of a wall while the others look on, standing or sitting, and a small group converse. The horizontal layout of this composition is more pronounced than in other scenes by this painter, which reinforces the idea of movement in the event. Stylistic motives like the evening light that flood

The Monkey Sculptor
Oil on panel. Ca. 1660
Teniers The Younger, David

A monkey dressed as a sculptor works in his studio, making a statue of a satyr while another helps him and a third, dressed in elegant clothes, watches his work attentively. Other works by the artist are visible in the background, including the tomb of another simian. This work is paired with The Monkey Painter (P01805) and both offer Tenier´s critical vision of merely imitative artistic activity.

The Monkey Painter

Teniers The Younger, David

The teacher at this money school punishes one of the students while another seems to be interceding on his behalf. Behind, the rest of the students look on in fear from their tables. This is a criticism of the bad social attitudes whose stupidity and lack of rational thought is symbolized here by monkeys. Teniers dealt with this matter on several occasions. In the present example, he is clearly cr

Smokers in a Tavern

Smokers in a Tavern
Oil on panel. 1635
Teniers The Younger, David

A group of villagers sit or stand indoors, smoking around a barrel that serves as their table. In the background, another warms himself beside the fireplace, and a figure enters the room. In the foreground are cooking or tavern utensils, such as a jug, a cauldron and a barrel, which display Teniers´ skill at still-life and genre scenes. Outstanding here, is the naturalness of the dog. Huddled up,

Country Celebration
Oil on copperplate. Ca. 1650
Teniers The Younger, David

Peasants or villagers hold a feast in front of a tavern or inn, recognizable by its red flag. They drink, eat and dance to the music of a bagpiper standing on a barrel. On the left, various distinguished personages, who stand out because of their different clothing, look on with a combination of curiosity and indifference. A large church in the background indicates there is a town nearby. On the b

The Kitchen
Oil on panel. 1643
Teniers The Younger, David

This is a singular example of David Teniers´ indoor scenes. The kitchen or tavern utensils so common in his other works are completed here with a magnificent show of diverse fruit and vegetables. This converts the right part of the composition into a still life. On the left, a character shells mussels, a traditional foodstuff in the Low Countries, while another group works beside the fireplace. Th

The foreground display of numerous military elements, banners, drums, cuirasses and weapons, leads to a genre painting showing some soldiers resting in the background. On the left of the composition, one of the pages works to hang up the soldiers' clothes. Here, as in his other works, Teniers shows his capacity to use light to achieve a perfect representation of the qualities of the objects depict

Some villagers smoke and chat at the door of a tavern. A woman is coming out the door, carrying the food they were waiting for. On the right, some peasants chat in a friendly manner. The church of a nearby village is visible in the background, and across the plains, another town is visible. Here, Teniers had Lucas van Uden paint the landscape. The latter used a warm evening light derived from his

The Alchemist

Teniers The Younger, David

And alchemist, recognizable by his characteristic cap, fans the fire in his laboratory. The presence of books, flasks and other instruments in the foreground reveal his pseudo-scientific activity. In the background, a group of three figures of a certain social standing appear to be discussing the subject from a theoretical standpoint. This work is paired with A Surgical Operation (P01803) and both

The Bowling Game
Oil on panel. Ca. 1645
Teniers The Younger, David

As part of his many genre scenes, Teniers frequently depicted players of skittles or other peasant games, such as bocce, which were very popular entertainment in seventeenth-century Flanders. The compositional scheme used by Teniers is similar to other works by him. At one end, the volumes of the houses serve as a backdrop for the scene, at the other, separated here by an earthen mound, the perspe

Villagers conversing
Oil on panel. 1640 - 1650
Teniers The Younger, David

Some villagers converse while going about their peasant tasks. This work is one of the rural scenes showing everyday life in the Flemish countryside, of which Teniers made many, especially during the sixteen forties, when he gradually abandoned the indoor scenes that had also made him famous. The presence of a block in the foreground —in this case, a house— and a perspective of the lan

A Surgical Operation
Oil on panel. 1631 - 1640
Teniers The Younger, David

A healer or rural doctor treats a peasant´s foot with rustic tools. Behind them, a worried woman looks on, while a servant enters with food. The composition is derived from works on the same subject by Teniers´ teacher, Adriaen Brower. The presence of an owl, symbolizing wisdom, may be an illusion to a critical interpretation of what is depicted here. This painting would thus be linked to the trad
