Interior of a Kitchen with a Woman, a Child and a Maid (c. 1668–1672) is an oil-on-canvas painting by the Dutch painter Pieter de Hooch. It is an example of Dutch Golden Age painting and is part of a private collection.

This painting was documented by Hofstede de Groot in 1908, who wrote:

38. WOMAN PEELING PEARS, WITH A CHILD AND A SERVANT-GIRL. Sm. 14. A woman sits beside a fireplace near the middle of the picture, facing the spectator. She has a basket of pears in her lap. To her left is a little child showing a pear to a servant-girl who, seen in full light, but with her back turned to the spectator, is taking something out of a press. The woman, who is speaking to the girl, wears a little red jacket trimmed with fur, a tucked-up apron, and a white kerchief; at her feet on the right is a dish of fruit. Beside her on the right is the fireplace, in which a kettle hangs over a peat fire. Above hangs a picture of Lot in his drunkenness. To the left is a shelf with plates and hanging jugs. The light comes through a window draped with red curtains on the left, and illumines also a plate of bread and a jug which stand on a table in the left foreground as well as the tiles of the floor. Signed: "P de Hooch"; canvas, 27 1/2 inches by 25 inches. Sales, P. Locquet, September 22, 1783, No. 183 (220 florins, Gildemeester). J.
