Please note that Professor Andrea de Marchi considers that the picture is by the Master of the Correr Dossal. He reconstructed the work of this artist in the circle of Nicolò di Pietro and Cristoforo Cortese in `Uno sguardo su Venezia fra Tre e Quattrocento: il Maestro del Dossale Correr', Bolletino dei Civici Musei Veneziani, n.s., XXXII, 1988, pp. 5-16.
