A painter, draftsman, and printmaker, Carlo Maratti was one of the most famous artists in Rome during the second half of the seventeenth century. Maratti, like many other artists of his day, learned his craft by drawing – studying and copying works of art by contemporaries like Guido Reni and revered Renaissance artists like Raphael (d. 1520), as well as great works from classical antiquity that were available in Rome. Although he specialized in large devotional paintings that satisfied the taste of Counter-Reformation patrons, Maratti also painted a number of mythological canvases such as this one for highly-sophisticated patrons and collectors.
