This painting combines two of David Teniers's specialties: landscape and scenes of country life.
Before a rustic inn, a group of villagers converse, embrace, and dance to a bagpiper’s tune. Teniers was one of many Netherlandish artists whose paintings celebrate the joys of country life. These delicately painted works were created primarily for an elite urban audience nostalgic for a simpler existence.
