Of the Macchiaioli, only Signorini consistently painted scenes of contemporary urban life. In the present work, both Signorini's choice of subject and his bright, fresh technique constituted an affinity with Impressionist paintings of a similar kind. Of all the Macchiaioli, Signorini was the most open to Impressionism.
