The picture shows an illustration from one of Adriaen van der Venne's own books, the Tafereel van de belacchende werelt (Tableau of the Laughable World) published in 1635 in The Hague. This tome recounts the experiences of two peasants, Tamme Lubbert and Fijtje Goris, as they attend The Hague's annual May kermis.
