Lot Essay

We are grateful to Professor Ugo Ruggeri for confirming the attribution on the basis of photographs. He notes that it is a very beautiful and important painting and compares it to Jacob blessing Joseph's sons in the Musée d'Art et d'Industrie in Saint-Etienne and Abraham teaching the Egyptians astrology in the Church of Santa Maria del Giglio in Venice. He suggests a dating of circa 1675.
