The monochrome colour is typical of Frans Francken´s later works from the 1630´s. The interior occurs in several of his paintings, such as the “Allegory of Painting” in Berlin and that too is signed 1636. This painting is signed FFRANCK. IN Ao 16.

It was probably Frans Francken the Elder who gave him his initial education and his uncle Hieronomous the Elder supplied additional instruction. Together with Jan Brueghel the Elder Fransk Francken the Younger developed a new genre motif that was gallery interiors. At the Art Dealer´s is a typical example of Francken´s 1630´s style when he basically painted in monochrome, subdued colours.
