Originally a delicacy prepared on the festival day of Shrove Tuesday, the last day of Carnival and the day before the beginning of Lent, pancakes were associated with feasting and wild behavior. Images of pancake makers were initially moralistic in nature, symbolizing gluttony and lust. By the 17th century, pancakes were eaten every day and the theme lost some of its allegorical significance. The scene retained its popularity among painters and printmakers of “low-life” genre scenes, or scenes of everyday peasant and street life. [Gallery label text] Steen was a prolific artist who specialized in low-life genre scenes, such as the popular subject of the pancake maker. A delicacy prepared especially on Vastenavond, or Shrove Tuesday, which was the last day of Carnival, the pancake had become associated with feasting and riotous behavior. It was therefore identified with overindulgence and became a symbol of gluttony or lust. During the seventeenth century, however, pancakes began to be enjoyed at any time, which reduced the allegorical potency of the theme.

The landscape and the rich drapery behind the child suggest a Spanish origin. Based on these elements as well as the treatment of the child’s face, one scholar has suggested that MAG’s Child with a Dog could be the work of Juan Battista Martinez del Mazo, the son-in-law of the most famous Spanish painter of the mid-1600s, Diego Velázquez. After his father-in-law’s death, Mazo succeeded Velázquez as the official painter to the royal family; many of his portraits were of children, and many made use of similar background landscapes and drapery. We believe now that this work is by a painter active among the Spanish nobility during the mid-17th century, a period marked by prosperity and a flourishing of the arts known as Spain’s Golden Age.

Its development reflects changes in the views commonly held at that time on the universe and man’s relation to it. As landscape painting developed, the Dutch were quick to acquire a taste for Italian settings and motifs. In this painting, Both uses Italian motifs, such as ruins, as pictorial elements; he then combines them with the typical genre scene of a group of men playing cards. Also called The Ruins of the Temple of Saturn, this painting is a version of the original Jan Both painting of the same subject that is owned by the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, Germany. It was probably painted by either Jan Both or his brother, Andries. [Gallery label text] Born in Utrecht, Both subsequently traveled to Rome, where he remained from 1635 until 1641, when he returned to Holland. He was among the leading “bamboccianti,” as the Dutch painters were called who assimilated their native genre tradition with the classical landscape tradition they discovered in Italy. This popular composition, an autograph version of which survives in the Alte Pinakothek, Munich, shows low-life types amusing themselves near the formidable ruins of the Temple of Saturn.
