Lot Essay

In his recent catalogue raisonné, Andrea Donati describes this painting as a workshop variant of a composition for which the prime version might be lost (loc. cit.). The scholar proposes that the painting of this subject in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, might be the original, with the qualification that it too might be a workshop copy (ibid., no. 142).
