Painting Work from a Cabinet (such small size paintings are done very precisely, with a great degree of "finish" as it is the case for this work).
From the 15th century onward, wealthy collectors of art would keep these paintings in a cabinet, which was a relatively small and private room (often very small even in large houses) to which only those with whom they were on especially intimate terms would be admitted.
He is trying to somehow show the time running , the painting needs some more study .
Work in a very good state of conservation and very nicely framed.
Provenance: German Private Collection.
