Lot Essay

We are grateful to Daniele Benati for confirming the attribution to Elisabetta Sirani, on the basis of photographs (written correspondence, 31 August 2016). Sir Denis Mahon and Dr. Emilio Negro also independently endorsed the attribution to Sirani at the time of the 2003 sale, the former on the basis of firsthand inspection and the latter on the basis of a color transparency.
