About this work
This is a design for a painting to decorate the wall of a room; Devoto worked both as a painter of stage scenery and as a decorative painter in private houses. A finished drawing with a Latin signature, it would appear to have been made for presentation to a patron, either as a plan of a future project, or a record of a finished one.
