Nobility loved to adorn the walls of their salons with battles depicting single acts of heroism or complex fights, expressing patriotism and military skills, virtues with which the nobles identified.

This work was realized by Pietro Graziani, son or, according to other studies, a relative of Francesco Graziani. Graziani was active at the turn of the 18th century. His painting shows a wit and a fluency of touch that is the main characteristic of the eighteenth century. His father Francesco Graziani (also known as Ciccio Napoletano) is a minor 'battallionist' active in Naples and Rome in the second half of the 17th century. He was probably from Capua because, in some sources, he is remembered as Ciccio da Capua.
