The painting in question depicts a still life with game, where several species of birds are gracefully nestled in their reverse poses.
The painting is attributed to a painter ascribable to the Emilian school at the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, interested in Nordic patterns, with strong affinity to the creations of Felice Boselli (Piacenza 1650 - 1732), one of the greatest still life painters of the Italian Baroque .
He was a painter active especially in Parma and in his hometown, where he studied and entered the world of painting under the guidance of Michelangelo Nuvolone. Precisely in that shop he got to know Angelo Crivelli, (known as the Crivellone), an animal specialist specializing in game still lifes, who significantly influenced his style together with the Cremonese school, that of Bergamo in Baschenis, Bettera, that Roman by Michelangelo Cerquozzi.
In addition to these ancestry, he had to observe, like most Italian artists who painted still lifes in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the Flemings as well.
The cut of the light underlines the descriptive game of the plumage of the animals
