The biography transmitted to us by Soprani on Luciano Borzone gives us the image of an artist who was among the most esteemed protagonists of the Ligurian artistic history of the first half of the seventeenth century, appreciated by the most prominent figures of the nobility of the time. It seems to be possible to expect from the Borzone works of a profane nature, destined for a cultured private collection, therefore freed from the iconographic custom of representations destined for public devotion. A significant example of this free production of Borzone, it is certainly to be recognized in this work, stylistically exemplary of his more mature ways, which stand out unmistakably in those soft folds of the cloths almost more summarily suggested than outlined, where every detail of the painting is built with surprising effectiveness to say the least in such a singular executive essentiality.
