"Peter Van Laer. (Bamboccio, 1613-1673.) Laaren. The glutton. 52 x 38. This repulsive subject is very strongly painted, and the brutal, animal instincts of the chief actor are vividly portrayed in his face. The subordinate figures of the servant and jester are also well limned. The eager cat is put on the side of the bowl probably to indicate the level of her master."
