David Teniers the Younger was an important Flemish artist who specialised in genre scenes. He is best known for his Flemish
peasant scenes, but he also regularly painted gypsies.

Most of these paintings represent fortune tellers. This occupation
was considered a sin in Christian, Catholic Europe. It stood for
self-deception, for manipulation of God’s laws. Only a few of Teniers’ gypsy scenes, such as ours, show compassion for these poor people living at the edge of our societies.
