After the completion of the first series of pictures, Guglielmo Gonzaga commissioned a further four paintings that Tintoretto executed within a short space of time. Once again he created the impression of great depth with large figures shown close-up in the foreground and very small characters in the background. Here, the first highlight in Federico II’s military career as commander of the papal troops is depicted: the recapturing of Parma from the French. From the right-hand side of the picture the military leader is giving commands to his soldiers who are already climbing the city walls on tree-ladders.
