Malombra pioneered this style of historical interior scenes, intended to document a specific scene and accurately represent the surroundings. He was the first painter to represent the interior of the Sala del Collegio in the Doge's Palace; eight versions of the present painting exist, showing meetings in the magnificent hall.
