Subjects
This field specifies the various subject categories or genres that constitute the oeuvre of the artist in question. The contents of this field are generally based more on the documentation available at the RKD than on the literature.
Christian religious scene, portrait, still life, animal painting (genre), genre, kitchen piece (still life), market still life
Although he earned a reputation for his religious subjects, Aersten preferred genre scenes, to which his later works testify: a still life with fruits from 1551 in Raleigh is the first version of a work in Uppsala University; a still life with fruits from 1552 in Vienna of a rich interior is almost excessive (Willigen/Meijer 2003, p. 26).
