Twin Birth Celebration: Jan Steen

Twin Birth Celebration is a 1668 painting by the Dutch Golden Age artist Jan Steen. This work is located in the Hamburger Kunsthalle in Hamburg, Germany.

Childbirth during the Dutch Golden Age (17th century) was a complex and often challenging experience, especially in rural areas where medical facilities were limited. This scene is of a domestic celebration of what appears to have been a successful delivery of twins.
