Dwarfs Celebrating a Festival
Oil on canvas
24 3/4 x 36 7/8 inches (63 x 93.7 cm)
Born near Bergamo, Albrici (whose name is also recorded as Albricci and Alberici) lived and worked around Bergamo and Brescia, painting monumental frescoes for churches and public buildings. For private clients he worked in another mode entirely, producing comic scenes of dwarfs drinking, dancing or engaged in mock-heroic endeavors such as hunting giant lobsters or fighting batallions of frogs. This painting and the one immediately following are classic examples of this type.
C Property from the Collection of Ambassador and Mrs. Alfred Hoffman, North Palm Beach
