A glimpse into the life of court servants: two peasant women and a black servant only known for his name: Peter the Moor.
This painting is known as Sunday at the Cascine, a work by the court painter Justus Suttermans dated around 1634.
Justin Randolph Thompson analyzes the figure of the servant in the background, almost hidden but playfully participating in the action of the painting.
