During Brescia’s remarkable expansion under Venetian rule, the Milan-born sculptor Gasparo Cairano was involved in a large number of its major sculptural commissions.  He gained so much respect that he was praised by the great champion of Veneto classicist sculpture, Pomponius Gauricus.  Cairano’s work is characterised by an expressive realism complemented by classical elements.  Here the classically inspired drapery and the throne's legs carved with lion's heads show the artist's debt to antiquity. The tension in the arms, treatment of individual strands of hair and the mannered facial type, on the other hand, show his debt to Renaissance sculptors, such as Antonio Mantegazza. 

Very similar female figures by Cairano can be found on the portal of Sant’Apollonio in the cathedral in Brescia and on a marble altar from the Kress collection now in the National Gallery of Art, Washington (inv. no. K.123). Another version of the current subject, believed to be from the Loggia di Brescia, is today housed in the Museo Civico di S. Giulia in Brescia.
