Tavern Interio’ by Willem Linnig, 19th Century Dutch School. Oil on Panel from the Town Hall collection. A crowded tavern interior with two men and a woman in the centre grouped around an oak table. On the floor is a stoneware jug and a repousse copper wine cooler on a stool by the table. The central man is holding a glass and his pipe. Linnig was a Belgium artist who modernised the style and subject matter of 17th Century paintings. Artists of this time specialised in subjects such as flower compositions, still life and interior scenes. This picture was painted in the mid-1800’s when everyday life was very popular. Restoration of this painting was sponsored by The Le Riche Group in 1998. (Sophie Gorman, 2009)
