What does the original artwork description of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art say about the 18th century artwork made by Alessandro Magnasco? (© Copyright - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art -

The reputation of Magnasco, one of the most individual eighteenth-century painters, resides in the exuberance of his technique and the fantasy of his subject matter. Here people from the fringes of society have gathered to watch the spectacle of a man trying to teach a magpie to sing—an impossible task. The picture was probably painted when Magnasco was working for the Medici in Florence and was in contact with Sebastiano Ricci.
