Jan Havickszoon Steen (c. 1626 – buried February 3, 1679) was a Dutch genre painter of the 17th century (also known as the Dutch Golden Age).  Psychological insight, sense of humour and abundance of colour are marks of his trade.

Steen was born in Leiden, where his well-to-do, Catholic family were brewers and ran the tavern, The Red Halbert, for two generations.  Like his even more famous contemporary Rembrandt van Rijn, Jan Steen attended the Latin school and became a student i (showing 500 of 3769 characters).
