Description

The painting presented here belongs to the moment of greatest notoriety of Amorosi who, having left Giuseppe Ghezzi's workshop in Rome to walk on his own legs, becomes a point of reference in the capital for those who wish to enrich their gallery with curious and unusual subjects. . In fact, Antonio Mercurio Amorosi, originally from the Marche region, did not take long to realize that he had a particular predisposition for genre scenes, the Bambocciate as they were defined, not without contempt, by those who asked only tall and deep subjects from painting. In contrast to the representation of religious themes, of ancient history and even of mythology, the bamboccianti chose for their paintings miserable protagonists, caught in the gestures of a poor and mean everyday life with sordid and cramped environments as a background. They aroused the curiosity and attracted the attention of rich and cultured people, fascinated by the alien world of poverty and begging.
