In this painting Gaudenzio Ferrari allows free flow to emotion, composes with spontaneous freshness and in the way in which he combines russet-red, bright red and ochre, producing a mixture of harsh flavours on his palette. However, the composition with all its fire and temperamental revelation of emotions is a harmonious composition keeping the details in complete balance.
