A Genoese who belonged to the Capuchin order, Strozzi became one of the many foreign residents seeking inspiration in Venice. This is a study for a larger canvas for a church in Venice. The king was angry when invited guests refused a wedding invitation so sent his servants to the streets to gather people. One who was not wearing wedding clothes was tied hand and foot and thrown out. Jesus’s parable is that ‘Many are invited, but few are chosen’.
