The Peasant and His Wife at Market

A couple stand in a very dense and congested space, a broken wall behind them. The woman on the left holds a rooster by the feet and is looking at her husband, on the right, who has his hand extended and his holding a money bagin is left hand. At their feet is a stoppered jar and a basket full of eggs.
Albrecht Dürer
1519
Dürer creates a wonderful caracter study of these two peasants selling their goods at market.
