Sofonisba Anguissola was among the first artists to produce composition drawings of genre subjects, an unusual category in sixteenth-century Italian draftsmanship. This sheet is a celebrated surviving example of that activity. The highly finished, meticulous technique indicates that it was created as a presentation drawing rather than as a preparatory study for the painting.
