"Attr. A Theodoor Rombouts (anvers1597-1637) - Girl Who Buys The Game - Oil On Canvas 112x154"The beautiful painting (oil on canvas 112 x 154 approximately) depicting a girl buying game is the work of the Caravaggesque-Manferdian Theodoor Rombouts (1597-1637).
Rombouts is an extremely interesting figure in the painting of his time. He captures the avant-garde of Caravaggio's naturalism with its diffusion through the generistic academicism of Bartolomeo Manfredi. His language evolves in the stylistic research that will be strengthened with the example of the other exponents of international naturalism that he knows in his Roman years, such as Baburen and De Haan. This canvas is placed in the Roman years of the painter those around 1620, the canvas reveals a strong iconological substrate which, perhaps, connected to an unknown "pendant" alludes to the senses of sight (all the protagonists exchange intense looks) and of Touch ( in the hands of the woman counting coins). The alleged "pendant" had to contain references to the remaining 3: Smell, taste and hearing. The matrix refers to the drafts on the theme of "good luck" and the "lute player" by Caravaggio. Nevertheless, valid comparisons refer to already well-known paintings by Rombouts such as "the musical duo" and "Christ chases the merchants from the temple".
