The decoration of the Palazzo Lercari-Parodi was Cambiaso's most important secular commission of the 1570s. In the principal scene on the ceiling of the main room, the mythical emperor of Trebizond builds a warehouse and lodging at the order of the Lercari family's legendary forebear. The primary version of the preparatory study for this composition is in the Nationalmusem , Stockholm. The Suida-Manning version is a workshop replica of another preparatory drawing that evidently studied the distribution of light and shadow.
