Oil on canvas depicting a rich oriental merchant stopping in the countryside to give alms to farmers, the youngest of whom in the foreground seems to be grieving. Behind the grove on the right, a servant waits for the horses to stop. In the background,on the left, we can see three men in frock coats,and visibly wearing tricorns carrying long sticks . Curious genre scene, or maybe biblical….. Flemish School of the late 17th century or the beginning of the 18th century. Louis XVI century pearl frame in gilt wood.
