there is an astonishing rhythm to adriaen brouwer – few painters achieve it. goya and daumier achieve it – rembrandt takes it to another level but brouwer always has this phenomenal movement across the page – particularly in the face.

he was of the genre painters depicting tavern life, poverty & (in this case) dentistry.


i have yet to find a book on him. the wikipedia page is pretty sparse.  maybe someone should write one.


more of this sort of thing here.
