Trauben- und Melonenesser

More about this artwork
All of Murillo's genre paintings are to be found outside of Spain, having been sold throughout Europe by art dealers already during the 17th century. The staged subjects are mostly of children and beggar children, placed in apparently every-day situations. What makes this Murillo painting so poignant is the mixture of idealization - there's no trace of hunger or illness - and naturalism, which renders the scene so true-to-life.
