Lot Essay

A similar composition by Nicola Grassi, The Holy Family with Saint John the Baptist, is in the Museo Civico, Padua (see G. Gallo, Mostra di Nicola Grassi, Udine, 1961, no. 59). We are grateful to Prof. Ugo Ruggeri for confirming the attribution to Grassi (private communication, 13 June 2008).
