BREKELENKAM, Quiringh van
(b. ca. 1622, Zwammerdam, d. ca. 1669, Leiden)

A Woman Scaling Fish

Oil on panel, 43 x 34 cm
Private collection

From the late 1640s Brekelenkam painted domestic subjects with middle-class figures preparing food, scrubbing pots, doing needlework, or ministering to children.

The present panel represents an interior with a woman scaling fish together with a child in a high chair near a fireplace, a bed in the background.
