This is a copy of a signed work by Salvator Rosa of about 1645 in the Pitti Palace in Florence. It shows an episode from the story of the Stoic philosopher Diogenes, who wanted to be free of all earthly attachments. On seeing a boy drinking with his hands from a stream he threw away his drinking bowl, his last remaining possession.
