A Woman with a Child in a Pantry is an oil-on-canvas painting by the Dutch painter Pieter de Hooch, created c. 1658. It is part of the collection of the Rijksmuseum, in Amsterdam.


This was the first painting by Hooch documented by Hofstede de Groot in 1910, who wrote:

1. A YOUNG WOMAN AT A PANTRY-DOOR WITH A CHILD. Sm. 25; deG. 3.[1] In a room floored with yellow tiles stands, to the left, a young woman, wearing a red jacket and a blue skirt. She has just come from the pantry, and smilingly hands a jug to a little girl. Both figures are seen in profile. Traces of a picture painted over by the artist himself are faintly visible on the wall above the woman's head. The small window of the pantry and a cask are seen through an open door on the left. Through an open door on the right is a sitting-room; in this room a cushioned chair, with a portrait on the wall above it, stands by the open window. "An excellent work of the master" (Sm.).
