More about this artwork
The title of the painting refers to a role-playing game traditionally performed in family circles in the Netherlands at Epiphany, when the ‘bean feast’ is celebrated. King Herod—chosen by drawing lots—is mocked as a drunkard as a reminder of his all too excessive indulgence.
