Genre painting
Genre painting shows everyday scenes of customs and traditions of people in a generally realistic manner, without any religious, mythological or historical background. Genre painting only developed into its own category during the 16th and 17th century and is most popularly used to describe the works of Dutch painters. The paintings illustrate everyday life, of ordinary people, or of nobles and the bourgeois in work or recreation.
