Little Charmer. The Hopeless Case (1871) was painted by the Italian genre painter Antonio Rotta (1828-1903). It shows a young girl, dressed in a typical Venetian shawl looking at her broken shoe. The shoemaker has looked at it, and is trying to explain to her that it is a hopeless case. The girl still seems a bit hopeful though, or maybe she is already a bit sad about the verdict. Rotta mostly painted genre paintings of Venetian life, and he did not shy away from capturing the daily mess in the interiors he painted. We can see the cluttered interior of this shoemaker shop, which gives the scene an authentic feel. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #ItalianArt #ItalianArtist #ItalianPainter #AntonioRotta #Hopeless #Shoemaker #Shoes #BrokenShoes #Adorable #GenrePainting #GenreScene #Cute #Authentic
