This beautiful painting is an exquisite work by the painter Louis de Caullery. Louis de Caullery (ca.1580–1621) was one of the pioneers of the art genre of courtly gatherings in Flemish painting of the 17th century.
According to the RKD he was born in Caulery, which is a small town near Cambrai. In 1594 he became the pupil of Joos de Momper. He was a follower of Paul Vredeman de Vries known for his architectural pieces.
Caullery was inclined toward genre painting and dealt with a highly variety of scenes: carnivals on ice, fireworks, bull-fights, open-air collections, allegories of the five senses and meetings painted in the spirit of the Fontainebleau School. The tallness of his characters, their exquisite postures, smooth faces and bare foreheads characterize his style. His colours are highly sophisticated.
Our painting is painted on copperplate and is marked with the stamp of Peter Stas and dated 1605.
Housed in a blackened 17th century style frame.
