KEIL, Bernhard
(b. 1624, Helsingör, d. 1687, Roma)

Interior Scene

Oil on canvas, 110 x 145 cm
Private collection

Keil is known to have often included allegorical meanings in his genre scenes. This painting, which depicts four figures in an interior gathered around a brazier, may allude to the various stages of a woman's life: childhood, youth, maturity and old age.
