From "A Family Collects: Paintings and Sculpture from the Codman House," Concord Museum, 1993-1994: In the late eighteenth century small paintings were often grouped in balanced arrangements on the walls of a room. The two interiors are genre scenes (scenes of everyday life) painted by a French artist in the style of the seventeenth-century Dutch masters Adriaen van Ostade and David Teniers. The landscapes on either side, although framed as a pair to be hung together, are not related in subject matter nor do they appear to be by the same artist. One depicts a camp of soldiers, complete with camp followers, while the other depicts dwellings of peasants.
