Important painter in the history of Neapolitan painting, Scipione Compagno began his activity around 1636 and completed it around 1660. He was a pupil of Aniello Falcone and a fellow student of Salvatore Rosa.
According to Salerno, we can distinguish two periods in the life of the painter:
From 1636 to 1650 he painted small, delicate works on copper (e.g. "The Massacre of the Innocents" from the Alisio collection in Naples)
From 1650 onwards he adopted a broader style as shown by the two paintings:
Entry of Christ in Jerusalem (passed to Finarte in Rome) or the painting presented here.
One constant remains: the tendency to treat historical subjects in a miniaturizing form, as in Bril and Poelenburg in Rome, and especially Salvatore Rosa and Mico Spadaro in Naples.
