Table conversation

 

In a sense, a painter has the unique ability to stop time, to offer us a retrospective of moments that all of us have stored in our memories, such as the table conversation depicted here.

In Hofhuizen’s earliest table-conversation paintings, which date from the late 1940s, the conversation is between a father, a mother and their children. This one dates from around 1947.
