Village entertainment was one of the favorite genre paintings of Flemish, Dutch and Italian painters. The exuberant entertainment swirling around the local business, people conversing, drinking and playing with the girls follows realistic Baroque miniatures from David Tenier, paintings by Joakim Beuckelaer or Pieter Brueghel Jr., and the theme is in the collections of many of the world's leading galleries.
