    We are grateful to Mr Everett Fahy for proposing the attribution on the basis of photographs. Mr Fahy notes that the figure of Christ repeats an idea of Sandro Botticelli, also known in several variations by Jacopo del Sellaio, adding that this is very typical of Trombetta who frequently used designs and compositions by other artists.
