Peasant Grimacing

Oil on panel, 15 x 11 cm
Private collection

This small painting shows a peasant grimacing with his arm in a sling. Craesbeeck's chief concern here is the accurate rendering of a face distorted by a grimace which is a result of his broken arm, supported here in a dingy, handmade sling.
