Zoran Kwak examines the Northern Netherlandish kitchen scene from approx. 1590 to 1650, and addresses the pictorial tradition, meaning and function of the works that form part of this thematic group. These paintings typically feature a combination of still-life elements, images with contemporary figure types and religious scenes, and present the kitchen as ambience and depict activities and motifs connected with the preparation of food.
