This work illustrates this Verona-born artist's successful activity in Rome and the prestige of his art among the high aristocratic collectors. It is an exquisitely executed painting with realistic features and a classicist composition in which the setting, light, colours and sentimentality merge in delicate harmony. It was purchased in Italy for the Palacio del Buen Retiro in Madrid.
