The pancake-maker is still a very popular subject in the Netherlands.It is remarkable how Rembrandt was able to describe the emotions of a variety of children within such a restricted space. He probably drew inspiration from a work by Adriaen Brouwer, for in his inventory of 1656 there is a refferal to a painting by Brouwer of a similar subject.
