About Wandering Musician

Adriaen van Ostade was a renowned Dutch Golden Age artist, known for his portrayal of peasant life. One of his notable artworks is The Wandering Musicians, a piece he painted and etched around 1648. The artwork depicts two musicians – a hurdy-gurdy player and a tambourine player – wandering through a rural landscape. It measures 26.5 x 21.5 cm and is oil on panel.

The Wandering Musicians showcases van Ostade’s skill in capturing the everyday life of people from the countryside. He portrays the musicians in an unidealized manner, showing their ragged clothes and rough appearance as they wander through the rustic scenery.
