Buben beim Würfelspiel

More about this artwork
Murillo's four other Munich genre paintings were executed thirty years after "Beggar Boys Eating Grapes and Melon", of particular interest being "Beggar Boys Playing Dice." The work's pale lighting seems to capture the particular mid-day light as it might have appeared in Seville's alleyways, which were covered with tarps as protection from the heat.
