Bison specialized in the decoration of private residences, theatre design, and landscape painting. Lyrical and sometimes fantastic, his style drew freely upon the themes and modes of eighteenth-century Venetian painting and brought them to a last, Romantic stage. The small scale, rustic subject, amorphous composition, and pastel palette of this work are characteristic of his activity at Trieste in the early 1820s. Although Bison’s drawings are common––the Blanton possesses two fine examples––his painting are rare outside of northeastern Italy.
