Title The Pedlar wikidata:Q2400652
A thin man wearing grey clothes is walking, holding his hat in his left hand. In his right hand he is holding a stick fending off an angry dog. On his back he is carrying a large basket. This type of basket was normally used by peddlers in the 16th century in the Netherlands. To the left an inn (and possibly also a brothel). To the right a path leading into a field where a cow and a magpie seem to watch the man. Above the man, in a tree, an owl is gazing at a great tit. In the background a gallows stands on a hill.
Date Circa 1494-1516
Medium oil on panel

Height: 71 cm (28 in). Width: 70.6 cm (27.8 in).

The panel was sawn on all sides (forming an octagon) and originally measured 94 × 72 cm.
