Glitched: “Youth Making a Face” (ca. 1632-35) by Adriaen Brouwer

Another piece created using photo manipulation and glitch editing techniques.

Brouwer’s original painting is an oil on panel, dated c. 1632- 1635, and measures 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 in. (13.7 x 10.5 cm). Very small indeed! It resides in Washington D.C.’s National Gallery of Art where it is framed in a much larger frame - 13 1/4 x 12 x 1 3/4 in. (33.7 x 30.5 x 4.4 cm).

Only about 60 of Brouwer's paintings are known; almost all are scenes of peasants in taverns or hovels. While this painting today evokes humor and light-hearted sentiments, Brouwer did not think well of the “peasant” class and often painted their activities to warn the “finer folk” of the consequences of misbehavior.

Though an inscription below this painting identifies Brouwer as a painter of vulgar or comic subjects, Anthony Van Dyck, in his Iconography, published in 1644, portrayed Brouwer as a gentleman with a dignified bearing.
