De Lelie painted this typically Dutch kitchen scene in the tradition of 17th-century genre painting. It probably served as the pendant to the Woman Baking Pancakes in this gallery. Just as in the Golden Age, this painter was interested in rendering the various details with the utmost realism: the basket of vegetables, the earthenware jug, the pewter on the mantelpiece, and the brassware hanging on the white tiled wall.
