This is another of my favorite paintings there, which is part of their permanent collection. Painted by Fran Hals, between 1618 and 1620. He was a Dutch portrait painter who lived in Haarlem,The Netherlands (1580-1666).
The painting is titled The Rommel Pot Player. A rommel pot is a type of friction drum.
I love the way the rosy cheeked children seem delighted with his performance.
I saw my first Frans Hals painting when I lived in The Netherlands, in the late seventies, at The Mauritshuis Museum in The Hague. Some day I would like to go back to the Netherlands, and visit The Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem, The Netherlands.
