The canvas is very pleasant, cheerful and really interesting and it amazes for how much joyful lightheartedness this gang of characters dressed in rags can spread. Among the countless tasty animated scenes with characters of peasant extraction described by the famous Flemish masters, the representation of a group of beggars is rare if not impossible to find. the Author, instead of capturing a rural but still dignified context, proposes an unusual scene where the protagonists are obviously beggars who meet in front of the fire in the evening to celebrate the fruit of their begging. The vigorous brushstrokes and bright colors with very pronounced chiaroscuro, create a pleasant effect of movement and three-dimensionality. The fire, fed by the child with the bellows, frontally illuminates all the figures that are clearly detached from the dark background of the room. We believe the Flemish attribution that historically accompanies the work and which appears evident at first sight is correct, even if in our opinion the stylistic characteristics of the figures and above all of the little dog with Italianizing features lead us to consider a research among our bamboccianti authors.
