Adriaen Brouwer
A Fat Man

c. 1634-1637 Zu sehen in Saal 4

Adriaen Brouwer often portrayed peasants as drunkards and hoodlums. And this slovenly man with his hand in his half-opened jerkin certainly does not look at his best. In the background, you can just make out a dune landscape and a couple walking on the left. Brouwer applied the paint very thinly with smooth, accurate brushstrokes.

Brouwer came from Antwerp, but also worked in Haarlem and Amsterdam for a while. His comical scenes influenced Dutch painters of everyday life.
