The cloister of the church of San Giovanni degli Eremiti is an iconic monument of the Arab-Norman Palermo and was built by Roger II between 1130 and 1148 together with the adjoining church. In the second half of the 19th- century Sicilian painters frequently depicted it as a result of the growing interest in renovating and protecting medieval architecture. In the painting, the unique gallery is depicted as a quiet and cosy place where a mother and child play.
