The Licentious Kitchen Maid
The Licentious Kitchen Maid The Licentious Kitchen Maid

By Pieter Gerritsz Roestraten

The Licentious Kitchen Maid
The Licentious Kitchen Maid The Licentious Kitchen Maid

Realistic, though not a scene taken from everyday life. This is an erotic tableau. The woman is shameless. A monkey, the epitome of indecency, leers up her dress. The monkey is on a chain and reminds us that man is a prisoner of his own sinful lust. The picture has a message, emphasised by the warning of the old man’s raised finger: beware of sinful behaviour. The creator of this painting, Pieter van Roestraten, was a pupil of Frans Hals. He married Ariaentge Hals, his master’s daughter.
