This mannerist composition is full of architectural props and crowds of figures in movement. Close to Paolo Veronese in his early career, Farinati remained in Verona as head of a very busy family studio. Like other painters of the time he was greatly interested in architectonic structure, as is evident in his construction of this scene.
