Oil painting on canvas, A Dutch Kitchen Scene by Joachim Bueckelaer (Antwerp c.1533 – Antwerp 1574). Three peasants and a girl in a kitchen. A decorative gilt inner frame and plain outer. Three peasants, two men and an elderly woman, are seated round a girl who is baking waffles- one of the men, dressed in a green jerkin and red tunic bends over her shoulder; the old woman in the background is spinning with a distaff and is assisted by the other man, who wears a red jerkin. The girl herself wears a white bodice over a dress with orange sleeves and a red skirt.
