Der schlafende Offizier im Gasthaus

More about this artwork
Lazy, good-for-nothing characters sleeping at untimely moments because they are drunk and neglecting their duties are frequently found in Dutch art, forming a motif that goes back to the medieval allegory of the deadly sin Acedia (Idleness), here personified by the officer who is merry from too much wine.
