The many paintings of card players in David Téniers' tavern are dated back to his youth, mainly in the 1640s, using a formula invented by Adriaen Brouwer and varying each time the number of characters, the place of the table, the fireplace in the background or the clay jugs in the composition. They are remarkable for their ability to capture the characters' expressions and the limited range of brown and grey.
A certificate of authenticity from Ms. Margret Klinge will be provided to the purchaser.
