Biography:
Jan Steen was the son of a successful brewer and began studying at the Leyden University in 1646. Two years later, he helped to found the Leyden Guild of Saint Luke, possibly studying under Nikolaus Knupfer. Steen moved around quite a bit, living the The Hague and Haarlem before returning to Leyden to run a tavern. He also leased a brewery in Delft and married Jan van Goyen’s daughter. Many of Steen’s painting were humorous depictions of tavern scenes, although he also produced quiet interior scenes with moral, proverbial, and literary allusions. A devout Catholic, he also painted over sixty religious pieces.
