Born and trained in Milan, Tavella was a protagonist in the development of landscape painting in North Italy, specifically the principal exponent of the classical tradition in Genoa after his relocation there in 1701. Unusual as a figure study, this drawing represents a kind of homage to the Genoese tradition of animal subjects and to the work of Castiglione in particular. Meticulously rendered in two inks to lend an atmospheric perspective, signed and dated, it was surely a special effort for presentation to a patron.
