171 Oud Holland Jaargang/Volume 124 - 2011 Nr. 2/3 Pieter de Hooch (1629-1684/1694) has long been the focus of attention among both art historians and the general public. Cornelis Hofstede de Groot and, later, Peter C. Sutton, 1 have thoroughly researched and masterly outlined his oeuvre, and new information, has recently enriched the scant biography. 2 It is, therefore, a rare and delightful opportunity to introduce a forgotten painting into the oeuvre of this great master. For more then half a century a painting by de Hooch, Card Game (fig. 1), was left almost untouched in the depot of the Tel-Aviv Museum of Art. Anyone familiar with the work of this master, in particular with his early paintings, would immediately discern here the same qualities. This article has, then, a two-pronged aim: to restore to De Hooch’s oeuvre and, through it, to shed more light on his early period. Painted in oil on panel, the Card Game is 52.5 centimeters high and 46.5 centime- ters wide. It features a woman and two men in a humble interior, playing cards around a three-legged stool while a third man is standing behind them, his back turned to- ward the scene.
