The two main protagonists were the then reigning head of the Liechtenstein family, Prince Johan Adam Andreas, and the Bolognese painter Marcantonio Franceschini. This study gives a detailed account of this vast project, based primarily on the correspondence between the two men with a complete illustration of all the works and preparatory studies. Also included are a succinct account of Franceschinis career, an analysis of his artistic style, and a commentary on the collecting activities and taste of the Prince.
