Farmyard, Jan SIBERECHTS, 1662
The surprising element of this Farmyard is not the subject, but the way it is depicted.
Siberechts represents the peasant world in a very dignified manner, without masking reality: clothes are torn; feet are covered in dust… This attention to details, surprising for the time (1662), is also present in the other works of the artist.
