This is one of a group of small tempera paintings by Estella Canziani in the Birmingham Collection. They are particularly valuable in providing documentary information on the clothes and associated lifestyle of the local people living in remote villages in Northern Italy. This scene shows carnival figures dating back to the medieaval period from the village of Biella in Piedmont. In the accompanying 'Piedmont' book (p.192) Estella Canziani notes: 'This costume is now only worn at carnival with addition of masks'.
