Original: oil on canvas 85 x 89 cm wxh
Date: ca 1629

The painting, also called Peeckelhaering, shows a stage actor portraying the "Narrator Peeckelhaering". He can be recognised by his wide-brimmed jester's suit, wine jug and pipe. The jester of the Haarlem folk theatre cleared his "brackish" throat after eating salted herring.

The whole is painted in the style of Frans Hals, who himself painted "the merry drinker", with much use of light and dark and a loose use of the brush. The face shows an expressive expression.

The painting belongs to the collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
