Gabriƫl Metsu (1629-1667) was trained as a painter in his native Leiden but spent the last part of his career in Amsterdam. Most of his output consists of genre paintings which reproduce in a direct & simple way the life of the Dutch middle classes in the 17C.

Note: Because Metsu included details of rooms and landscapes in his paintings, most of these works are details.
