CODDE, Pieter
(b. 1599, Amsterdam, d. 1678, Amsterdam)

Interior with Musicians Seated around a Table

c. 1627
Oil on panel, 40 x 58 cm
Private collection

The figures in this harmonic scene are painted with a naturalism that is typical of Codde, and the utmost care is taken in painting the sitters' clothing. Though his palette is characteristically muted, restricted mostly to tones of green and brown, the artist instead concentrates on the representation of texture and light.
