Raucherszene (Der Geschmack)

More about this artwork
The painting technique Brouwer uses to capture scenes is both informal and precise at the same time. Here, a smoker is concentrating hard on lighting his pipe with a taper—almost becoming cross-eyed. The hollow cheeks illustrate the first deep draw of breath.
