Lot Essay

Giovanni Biliverti returned to this subject on more than one occasion, with the prime version being in the Galleria Palatina, Palazzo Pitti, Florence, another in Christ Church, East Norwalk and third in the Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg. The present canvas, produced in Biliverti's studio, was cut down along the lower edge to make the figures half-length.

We are grateful to Professor Francesca Baldassari for endorsing the attribution on the basis of photographs.
