Context: Benouville was trained in Paris but worked also in Italy. He is best known for his Italian pictures, with their great sensitivity to southern light and atmosphere and their contribution to the growing trend of Luminist painting that eventually led to Impressionism. This painting was executed in Rome the year before Benouville won the "Prix de Rome" for historical landscapes. It displays a mastery of subtle lighting effects and an ability to mix close observation of nature with general poetry of mood. The inclusion of three different religious orders together with an eastern holy man adds a romantic note touching on cross-cultural, timeless unity.
