Baroque   •   Jan Havickszoon Steen @ Wikipedia

Born the son of a brew brewer in Leiden around 1626, Jan Havickszoon Steen completed a painting education with various Dutch and German masters. As an assistant, he worked with the landscape painter Jan van Goyen , with whose daughter Margriet he was married until her death in 1669. He worked as dean in the Leiden Sint Lucas guild and maintained in addition to his career as a painter in addition, a tavern. Around his person are many legends and stories, he was considered a funny fellow, who was the landlord as his best customer, and chaotic head of the family.

Steens topics were diverse nature, the representations in his detailed paintings ranging from Old Testament episodes about satirical social criticism to comic scenes of bourgeois life. His lively interpretation of turbulent meetings of many characters even came as a proverb in the Dutch language: "een huishouden van Jan Steen" is indicative of domestic disorder. Steen often superficially gave the impression of joy and serenity, but on closer inspection, the gentle scolding for wrong behavior is striking. Steen had a special liking for the pictorial representation of music and instruments, as in his self-portrait as a lute player. In "The Opposite World" of 1663, Steen humorously deals with old Dutch proverbs, which he lets the characters play like in a play. Jan Steen died in 1679 and was buried in the family grave in Leiden. © Meisterdrucke
