Description In this scene set in Rome, a young gypsy strums a guitar while a priest and a couple of men in frock coats play a game of checkers. The barber pulls up a chair to join them. The artist has provided a wealth of descriptive details, including caged birds, a copper barber's bowl suspended over the door, and graffiti on the wall. Jiménez, an artist from Seville, joined Mariano Fortuny's circle of Spanish artists in Rome in 1871. Like them, he displayed remarkable technical skills in his humorous depictions of daily life.
