Caroselli was apparently entirely self-taught, and his eclectic style included influences from Caravaggio, seen here in the strong contrasts and shadows, and the Bamboccianti or "low-life" painters in Rome. In addition to painting original works, he was successful as a copyist of masters like Titian and Poussin.
