    Saleroom Notice

    We are grateful to Maureen O'Brien of the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, for pointing out that the present work appears to be a version of a painting in their collection by Francesco Vanni, The Virgin and Child Appearing to St. Francis of Assisi, 1599, commissioned for the Chapelle des Lucquois in the monastery church of the Cordeliers de l'Observance in Lyon.
