This work reveals the painter’s sophisticated language, full of inventiveness and creativity, inspired by the most innovative practices that had emerged in Naples during the first quarter of the seventeenth century, ranging from naturalism to baroque classicism and Van Dyck's chromatic and moving subtlety. It is also a fine example of how commissions from aristocrats encouraged thematic adventures as bold as a biblical story of incest.
