. 11 x 14 cm The
subject belongs to medieval folklore: the fight of the lean and the fat is associated in Flanders with
the

period of Lent and the festivals of Carnival. Its very tight framing on the faces is inspired by the panel by Pieter Brueghel the Old representing a plump priest bitten by two old women (Copenhagen, Statens Museum for kunst), without holding back the anticlerical charge, changing the gender of the aggressors and adopting a circular format for the scene. Several versions with variants are known.
