The Flea by Giuseppe Maria Crespi

The Flea, 1707-09, by Giuseppe Maria Crespi
It seems that in Italy fleas were also a theme for genre paintings. :) I have already published "The Poor Poet" by Carl Spitzweg where the poet examine a flea that he is holding in his fingers. (click to enlarge)

With the two you've posted today I see something similar. All the brown tones. Lots of brown.

Have a terrific day. :)
