Description:
Jan Havicksz. Steen LEIDEN 1626 - 1679 THE ROMMELPOT PLAYER oil on canvas 22 1/4 by 16 5/8 in; 56.5 by 42.2 cm. Provenance Anonymous sale, Amsterdam, P. van der Schley, 7 May 1804, lot 150; H. S. Wayland (from an old printed label on the reverse); Dr. John D. Pitts; By whom (anonymously) sold, New York, Sotheby Parke Bernet, 6 December 1973, lot 135; There purchased by Mrs. M. Focaroh. Literature C. Hofstede de Groot, A Catalogue Raisonné..., London 1908, vol. I, p. 112, cat. no. 429 (with dimensions of 25 by 20 in.; with incorrect lot number for the 1804 sale); ; K. Braun, Alle tot nu toe bekende schilderijen van Jan Steen, Rotterdam 1980, p. 150, cat. no. A-254 (as only known from documents). Catalogue Note The subject is the celebration of Vastenavond (Shrove Tuesday), the festival preceding the period of Lent. The boy at left plays a rommelpot, an instrument consisting of an animal bladder stretched across an earthenware pot or jug and manipulated by a reed stick, which made a particularly raucous sound. The small girl joyously holds aloft a waffle, one of the traditional foods eaten on that date. The slightly larger dimensions of this painting as given by Hofstede de Groot (see Literature), indicates that the canvas may have been reduced slightly. It is comparable in both size and style to a work by Steen, titled The Syrup Eater, of circa 1664-68 depicting two children in a landscape which is in the Kunsthalle, Hamburg.

Gutachten: - Dr. Walther Bernt, München, 1972; - Prof. Dr. Justus Müller-Hofstede, Bonn, 1973. Fred G. Meijer vom RKD in Den Haag bestätigt in einer Korrespondenz vom Juni 2000 ausdrücklich die Urheberschaft Jan Steens an dem vorliegenden Werk. Nach Ansicht der Fotos zweifelt er die Signatur allerdings an, die seines Erachtens als schwach und untypisch zu bezeichnen ist . STEEN, JAN HAVICKSZ Leyden 1626 - 1679 Interior with Tobacco Cutter. Oil on wood. 25 x 20,5cm. Signed upper right: J.(lig.) Steen. Framed. Verso: On the panel various old adhesive labels: Cook Collection 258; Exhibited at the Loan Exhibition of Pictures by Jan Steen at the Dowdeswell Galleries, London 1909, Nr. 25". Assessment: Dr. Walther Bernt, Munich, 1972; Prof. Dr. Justus Müller-Hofstede, Bonn, 1973. In a correspondence dated June 2000 Fred G. Meijer from the RKD in The Hague explicitly confirms the authorship of Jan Steen for the work present. However, after inspecting the photographies of the work, he questions the signature which in his opinion is weak and not characteristic for the artist.
