An Interior with a Peasant Family, Follower of Federico Barocci (1535-1612).

Oil on canvas, 52cm by 38cm.

A rather charming scene of a peasant family warming themselves in front of a fire in their rustic cottage.

Barocci was mainly active in his native Urbino.

He was a technically brilliant, innovative painter, whose style influenced many other Italian artists in the 16th Century.

The emotional and spiritual elements of his works are also said to foreshadow Rubens.
