The peoples want their lottery tickets! But I'll let the Rijksmuseum explain for me:..the sale of lottery tickets for the 66th General Lottery has begun. Men, bent on obtaining a ticket, push and shove around the entrance....Ouwater was commissioned to paint this work by Jan de Groot, the owner of the bookshop and lottery agency. http://www.rijksmuseum.nl/aria/aria_assets/SK-A-4026?lang=enThe lottery was quite popular in the 18th century, at one point it revived the French economy! It was gambling after all.
