Three farmers looking at a small mirror.- Marten van Cleve (1527 - 1581)

Marten van Cleve studied under Frans Floris around 1516-1570, where he firstly discovered his skills in landscape painting. Encouraged by his brother Heinrich, he soon devoted himself to painting. His works often show multi-figured genre pictures with a humorous theme. Behind this humorous theme a deeper allegorical or socially critical meaning is not infrequently hidden. In 1551 he became a member of the Antwerp Guild of Luke.

This pictures depicts the portraits of two men and a woman, standing before a dark brown background. The woman is wearing a dark green robe with a coarse white hood. The younger man on the left is in a red robe, laughing and looking at the upper left corner. He is holding a small oval mirror that reflects the eldery couple standing next to him.
