    The composition is a copy after the originals by Guido Reni in private collections, New York and Modena.

    From photographs, Prof. Massimo Pirondini (written communication, 26 August 2006) notes '...di buona qualita ... una copia di un suo allievo molto prossimo (Gessi?)'. Massimo Pulini notes (written communication, 21 August 2007) 'credo sia un'opera di bottega vicino allo stile di Gian Giacomo Sementi'.
