"The Dovecote" by Jan Steen (1654) - "This stand-alone dovecote presumably refers to the Dutch term "duiven op zolder houden" ("keep the pigeons in the attic"), which also means to "keep a brothel." Steen enjoyed ambiguous paintings, so perhaps the building on the left is a brothel, with a nearby beer drinker & a young woman being "courted" by an older man."
