Attr. to Dirk Helmbreker (Haarlem, 1633 - Rome, 1699) Interior scene Oil on canvas, 95 x 134 cm - with frame 122 x 160 cm The convivial scene examined is due to the hand of Theodor Helmbreker (1633- 1696), Dutch artist active for a long time in Italy, among the most successful exponents of the Roman world of the so-called "bamboccianti". Since his arrival in Rome in 1654, the artist met with great success, as the sources attest and, above all, the long biography that Baldinucci dedicates to him. He worked not only in Rome but also in Naples and Venice, where he stayed for a certain period. Helmbreker created complex compositions with different anecdotal scenes and figures.
