This well-preserved painting betrays the influences of Frans van Mieris (and other Leiden 'fijnschielders') and Gerard Terborch in the costumes of the foreground protagonists as well as their postures. Moreover, the elongated figures are placed within an evenly lit room whose spatial disposition is reminiscent of Pieter de Hooch's interiors.
