Catalogue Note

Lauri painted both large-scale decorative works and small cabinet pictures. He trained first with his Flemish father, Balthasar Lauwers (1578–1645), whose name was Italianised as Lauri, and went on to study under Angelo Caroselli and Pietro da Cortona. Signed and dated paintings by Lauri, such as the present canvas, are rare. This painting is an early example of the artist's work in small format, setting the tone for his other idyllic cabinet paintings which came to anticipate the art of the 18th century.
