Dutch School, Peeling Vegetables At The Table

An early 20th-century Dutch school oil on canvas depicting a young lady peeling vegetables at a table. She’s dressed in traditional Dutch clothing including a pair of yellow clogs.

This quiet interior scene evokes the stillness and intrigue of a work by Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675). It captures the beauty within an everyday domestic moment - one that would otherwise pass us by. We love the colours in her dress and the way she rests her feet on the table. And her arms are quite muscular - probably because she’s always busy.

The painting is signed illegibly in the lower left, perhaps ‘Pluis’.
