Description:

French hand-painted toile peinte or painted tapestry depicting a 1663 Dutch Golden Age genre painting by Jan Steen titled 'Beware of Luxury'. The scene is of a domestic interior, where the woman of the house has fallen asleep and the rest of her household is misbehaving.
The antique textile canvas has age-appropriate wear to it and some minor damage due to folding.
Initialed and dated on the lower right corner 'SFC 1898' and has an illegible mark on the back border. The piece was possibly made in northern France in 1898 at a time of the Belle Epoque when Dutch genre painting of the 17th century was experiencing a popular revival.
