Description: Leandro Bassano (dal Ponte) stemmed from an extensive family of artists and trained in the workshop of his father, Jacopo, along with his three brothers. Later, in 1588, Leandro travelled to Venice where he was involved in the decoration of the Doge´s Palace. After the death of both his father, Jacopo, and his eldest brother, Francesco, Leandro continued to work in the 'Bassano style' before progressing and developing his own style, recognisable through the use of sharper contours and a lighter colour palette.
This large painting, of which a similar version exists in the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, reflects characteristics which align it with the more general style of the Bassano family; the extensive use of chiaroscuro, the rich colour palette and the abundance of narrative detail, for example.
