    The title of this fifth lecture reads like the set up to a joke and also contains an implied question: what could a milkmaid, a drunkard, and a newsboy have in common? In fact, each of these occupations or pastimes was a favorite subject of genre painters from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century.
