Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History



  • The Smoker, ca. 1625
    Frans Hals (Dutch, 1582/83–1666)
    Oil on wood

    Octagonal, 18 3/8 x 19 1/2 in. (46.7 x 49.5 cm)
    Marquand Collection, Gift of Henry G. Marquand, 1889 (89.15.34)

    The painting's authorship has been questioned but this is probably a modest work by Hals himself, about 1623–25. The subject simplifies the theme treated in the Museum's Young Man and Woman in an Inn (14.40.602). The octagonal shape of the panel is original.
