Painting in the style of Il Bamboccio with fountain


Explanation:
In the early seventeenth century, the "bamboccianti", a school of Dutch painters based in Rome and led by Pieter Van Laer (known as "Il Bamboccio", or "the chubby little boy") produced many successful paintings depicting scenes from ordinary Roman life.
Previously, only historical or religious themes had been considered worthy of representation and the innovators were not always appreciated by adherents of a more classical approach.

Explanation:
I like Angela's answer. Just a bit of info for you. "Bamboccio" is actually used frequently in regions like Emilia Romagna, for calling someone a "monello" or "birichino". Like calling somebody silly or stupid. (Except it carries more weight, but not quite as much as "schemo"). Just FYI.
