The present work clearly displays the influence of Fragiacomo's teacher Guglielmo Ciardi. It depicts one of the artist's favourite motifs, which he frequently depicted under varying light conditions. Fragiacomo was primarily active in Venice, where he regularly exhibited at the Biennale from 1895 to 1922.
