In a Roman Osteria, 2022-11-02

This painting by Danish artist Carl Bloch from 1866 was rather entertaining as a puzzle. The characters are looking at someone, and the man looks suspicious. The women look interested, but like they’re trying not to let it show. My first thought was that this is the kind of looks you would get if you start taking photos of strangers 🙂 The artist has also painted himself into the picture, he is sitting with his back turned at the smaller table in the background, and one of the other men is his friend who commissioned this painting.

In a Roman Osteria by Carl Bloch, D-Toys, 1000 pieces. Completed on November 2, 2022.
