More information

Barent Fabritius may have taken the inspiration for his painting of a butchered pig from Rembrandt’s famous work featuring a slaughtered ox, which hangs in the Louvre in Paris. The subject had been popular since the 16th century, however, so it is equally possible that he based his work on a painting by another artist. Fabritius did not invent the detail of the children playing with a pig’s bladder; it had been one of the most common additions from the outset.
