The importance of this painting, a preparatory sketch
for the fresco on the vault of the church of San Francesco da Paola in Milan, is
also increased by the fact that there are very few similar works by the artist,
better known for his work as a sculptor. Through comparison with other signed and dated murals we can
place this painting in the 1760s.
