Lot Essay

The attribution to Mauro Gandolfi was endorsed by Dr. Donatella Biagi Maino at the time of the 1997 sale (see Provenance) on the basis of a photograph. Maino believes that the present picture should be dated to the last decade of the eighteenth century, when Mauro's style was closer to that of his father Gaetano.
