Antique Italian painting from the 17th century, Bamboccianti genre scene

Antique Italian painting from the 17th century. Oil painting on canvas depicting a lively popular genre scene of great charm, typical of the Bamboccianti school. Many Flemish and Italian painters active in Rome took Pieter van Laer as a reference, known under the pseudonym il bamboccio due to his boyish appearance. It was typical to represent scenes of common life with particular attention to those who live on the margins of society, as in this case: next to Roman ruins we find a party of peasants who eat and drink while one of their companions plays a harp. 20th century frame in carved and lacquered wood of beautiful decoration, with some signs of aging (see photo). Artwork that has undergone a conservative restoration with replacement of the frame, relined and color recovery in some points. Overall painting in good state of conservation. Sight size H 59 x W 114 cm.
