The style of Bresciani da Gazoldo greatly developed over time, rendering a more traditional 19th century style more intense, almost symbolical, heightening its realism and providing a crude analysis of the human condition. Though he lived for a long time in Milan, he never forgot the suggestions of his native land, depicting in a clear and sincere way the features of the characters dear to him, or the contours of nature. The composition we can admire here was completed in his last year of life. It opens up in an almost unexpected way to the colours of Chiarismo, and the brushwork convincingly portrays the decorations of the large tablecloth. The composite ability is perfect and sharp, and the artists places fruit, vegetables, a bottle and a glass with taste and skill, so as to give every element the right space and time.
