More bankers counting money

The Banker and His Wife (XVIth c)

I didn’t know that Marynus van Reymerswaele had painted a similar situation to the last post: a banker or a moneylender counting money. I’m surprised! If I had to say something about this painting I’d notice that here there is the son of the banker and his wife behind her. And… have you seen that the banker is weighting the coins?

I am sure that this painting is not going to be the last financial situation represented by Van Reymerswaele!
