The effects of too much wine! A drunken man, vomits while collapsed on the floor, while another tries to draw his attention to two men behind carrying a large barrel. Genre scene after Karel van Mander I (1548-1606). Van Mander is now chiefly remembered as an important writer on art, but there are also some 150 engravings after his designs, many of which have a Christian moral below the image provided either by van Mander or one of the Haarlem schoolmasters he was acquainted with.
