Young Couple Seated at a Lavishly Laden Table, Jacob Matham (workshop of), after David Vinckboons (I), 1620

engraving, h 184mm × w 255mm More details

Three framed pictures warn against an excessive lifestyle: the rich man in hell who failed to care for the poor Lazarus; the Prodigal Son who ended up a swineherd; and the repentant Mary Magdalene. All saw the error of their ways. However, there is no sign of guilt or remorse with the young couple. Despite the delicacies on the table, something other than their appetite for food is being aroused.
