This painting may relate to Bison’s work in the theater. With its fantastical architecture and costumed figures and dancers, it has the feel of a set design for an opera or some other theatrical production. Among the theaters Bison is known to have designed for are the Teatro degli Obizzi and Teatro Nuovo in Padua, and the Teatro della Scala in Milan.
We are grateful to Daniele D’Anza, curator of the 2013 Bison exhibition at the Civico Museo Sartorio, Trieste, for endorsing the attribution to Bison on the basis of photographs.
