HAEN, David de
(b. ca. 1597, Amsterdam, d. 1622, Roma)

Satyr Drinking from Grapes

Oil on canvas, 114 x 74 cm
Private collection

This picture, depicting a Satyr squeezing juice from a bunch of grapes, is an example of the rare work of David de Haen, one of the central figures in Rome in the decade immediately following the death of Caravaggio, and an important link between Italy and the North through his interpretation of Caravaggism.
