Metal box of Duo colouring pencils
  • This box of 12 pencils Duo shows a detail of the painting of Samuel van Hoogstraten, "View of a Dutch Interior", or "The Slippers".

The painting's history, filled with turns and twists, was affected by the overbearing shadow of famous painters such as Vermeer or de Hooch. Many ever-changing attributions for this painting were tossed around. At certain moments, it was even thought to be an 18th-century or early 19th-century pastiche.

In the 19th century, some collectors went so far as to have new motifs painted onto the canvas: first a little dog, then Pieter de Hooch's monogram with the date 1658, and finally a little girl, seated. The picture seemed too empty and there was a desire to fill up the 'decor' so as to bring the work closer to the art of someone like Vermeer or de Hooch. Luckily, all the successive additions were easily removed, and the painting restored to its original purity, so characteristic of Hoogstraten.
