Masters of Everyday

When Royal Collection Trust conservators prepared Isack van Ostade's A Village Fair with a Church Behind (1643) they discovered a man squatting to do a poo in the foreground. This figure had been hidden behind overpainted foliage for more than 100 years. The painting is one of 27 that will go on display in Masters of the Everyday: Dutch Artists in the Age of Vermeer, which opens in The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace, on 13 November. The Music Lesson by Vermeer is another masterpiece included (CLICK).
