Catchpenny print. Popular print about the Dutch painter Jan Steen, giving a fictional account of his life. It projects the chaos and lustfulness of the genre paintings for which he is so well known, onto his own character and household, ‘een huishouden van Jan Steen’. This leads to an image of Jan Steen as a skilled and famous artist, whose excesses and mischief cause his wife pain, ruin his household, and bankrupt his brewery. Den Bosch, Lutkie & Cranenburg (1848 – 1881), numbered ‘No 107’ in the upper right corner.
