Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Among the "picturesque" sights in Rome at Christmas were the Pifferari, the itinerant musicians who left the hills of their native Calabria to supplement their incomes as shepherds by playing before shrines dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Tapiro, a Spanish artist, shared the vibrant colors of his compatriot Mariano Fortuny y Marsal.
