Further Reading
  • Although the painting bears a false signature of Léopold Robert (q.v.), Papety’s original signature underneath was revealed by local cleaning in 1985. Papety was one of many artists influenced by Léopold Robert’s scenes from Italian popular life which were much admired in the nineteenth century (cf. Léopold Robert P590-2). He visited Naples in 1839.
