Famous for his church interiors, such as the ‘picture within a picture’ of the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam in the background, De Witte depicts a richly furnished living room in this picture. This genre painting shows a wealthy family in an interior with marble floors, leather wall hangings embossed in gold, Chinese vases, and oriental carpets.
