A Saxon Villager Driving a Barrel with a Wheelbarrow

Ca. 1756. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

This canvas is an example of the 18th-century fascination with popular costumes and occupations. Charles III himself fostered the publication of prints on these subjects, both in Naples and in Spain, in order to draw attention to the diversity of his subjects. Like its pair, A Saxon Peasant Villager in her Kitchen (P2270), it was a gift of the Elector of Saxony, Augustus III, to his daughter Maria Amalia and his son-in-law Charles of Bourbon.
