Pietro della Vecchia followed the tradition of 16th-century Venetian painting and the Roman Baroque.

The warm earthy colours, the soft light and supple modelling of the body contours call to mind the Venetian masters of the Cinquecento, creating a poetic atmosphere. The soldier leans casually on a grey ledge, yet his grim expression and the hand on his sword show determination.
