    Bartolomeo Guidobono's style brought a lighter, more graceful spirit to late Baroque painting in Genoa, which had previously been dominated by the work of his friend and master, Domenico Piola. His treatment of folded drapery, soft lighting and sweet-faced figures influenced by Correggio were immediately received with enthusiasm by the public. By the early 1690s his work was influenced by Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, such as the scenes he painted in a small passageway of the Palazzo Rosso, which include figures framed by animals and still-life. It is possible that the animals in the present composition were painted by Domenico Guidobono.
