Commissioned by the sisters of Santa Maria di Monteluce, the Adoration of the Shepherds is a work in which Caporali, an exponent of the Perugia Renaissance, displays an artistic culture that was open to a diversity of influences. From local ones, such as Perugino, since there are clear references to the Adoration he painted for the church of Santa Maria dei Servi, to Florentine painting, all interpreted with an accent with a strong tendency to lyricism and bathos.
