    The present lot is an interesting example of the artist's practice of re-using successful compositions. It relates to a larger work of the same year, An evening market (sold Sotheby's Amsterdam, April 19 2005, lot 230), and depicts the girl in the right hand section of the larger composition. The left hand section of the larger composition, entitled A busy night market with a vegetable stall was sold Christie's May 8, 2012 lot 191.

    We are grateful to Dr. Jan de Meere for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
