The women on the island, except on wedding and christening days, or in their gala costume at Easter, say, wear the same dress Saturday and Sunday, but not so the men. They also exhibit their Frisian type in their round, low, felt hats; they have, when we see them at work, a dash of red at the shirt-neck, with buttons of gold, and wear fairly spacious breeches. The tourist delights to notice that boys and girls are dressed alike until the age of five. Then, on going to school, the boy is put into breeches; but until seven his hair is uncut, and, generally, he and his sister appear very much alike.

The charm and fascination of Dutch genre paintings of the seventeenth century is the way that they capture everyday people doing everyday things. With their harmonious, light-filled interiors, these meticulously painted glimpses of lives behind closed doors provide us with an extraordinary insight into their subjects and the period. Drawing on the rich holdings of Dutch masterpieces from the Royal Collection this book analyses these jewel-like scenes and puts the paintings into their historical context, to unravel the hidden narratives, the morals and meanings in these vignettes of everyday life.
