About this artwork

Inscribed: These brutal courageous ones hide their thefts at hostelries with the honored name of booty. Enemies of repose, they purposely pick quarrels to avoid paying the host, and seize even the mugs. Thus they take a fancy to other people’s property when they have been made drunk and served as they desired.
