'The Pancake Woman' by Rembrandt - a delicate and detailed 17th century impression

The pancake-maker is still a very popular subject in the Netherlands. It is remarkable how Rembrandt was able to describe the emotions of a variety of children within such a restricted space. He probably drew inspiration from a work by Adriaen Brouwer, for in his inventory of 1656 there is a referal to a painting by Brouwer of a smilar subject. This is an excellent impression of a charming subject. It seems that this Dutch national dish does wonders for hungry people, young and old.
