As the Old Sing, So Pipe the Young

This reproduction on canvas of As the Old Sing, So Pipe the Young by Jan Havicksz Steen is made in cooperation with the Mauritshuis Museum, where the original painting is hanging. Here, Steen has depicted the proverb 'as the old sing, so pipe the young', meaning that a bad example leads to bad conduct. The woman on the left with the open cleavage is having her glass topped up. On the right, the laughing father is teaching one of his children to smoke a pipe. This is Steen himself. Besides his gift for telling humorous stories, Steen was also a skilled painter who could suggest a variety of materials, such as the earthenware jug on the floor, the lilac skirt and the sparkling wine.
