brandt. The so-called ‘Jewish Bride’; an old man approaches a young

J. M. Molenaer, Lady playing the spinet.
234. Jan Steen, Drunken roisterers, a coarse but clever re-
ation of a carousal, which is not without its moral.
» the gentleman and lady are sacrificing to Bacchus and Venus, the
musicié slip contemptuously out of the room and a woman steals a cloak.
Over the head of the drunken old man is seen the picture of an owl with
candles and spectacles, with the minute inscription: —
Wat baeten kaers of Bril,
‘Als den uyl niet sien en wil?
(Of what use are candles or spectacles, when the owl will not see?).
