Based on original oil painting Le Ricamatrici by Adriano Cecioni who created it at the time of his stay in Naples in 1866. True to the then prevalent school of realism, he chose subject matter from everyday life, depicting workers of different professions. Bodies of the three embroiderers remind us of the elegance of classical antiquity and of early renaissance works of Piero della Francesca. Delicate lighting of the scene also seems to have come from a similar source of inspiration. Commissioned by a private collection in Milan.
