David Vinckboons
Country Fair

1629 Zu sehen in Saal 3

A village fair is in full swing. People are eating, drinking, dancing and kissing. On the left a man is vomiting – the unpleasant side effect of over-indulgence.

At the end of the sixteenth century, David Vinckboons moved from Flanders to Amsterdam, where he introduced the theme of the country fair to Holland. Vinckboons’ peasants and their humble pleasures were a source of amusement to collectors from the bourgeoisie.
