Four versions of the present picture are listed in Nicolson, (see B. Nicolson, Caravaggism in Europe, ed. L. Vertova, Turin, 1990, I, p.190), all apparently copies after a lost original. For the picture in Cassel see also B. Schnackenburg, Gesantkatalog Gemldegalerie Alte Meister Kassel, Mainz, 1996, p.73, no. GK 589, pl. 98 (as a copy). To these can be added the picture at Sotheby's, New York, 19 May 1995, lot 14 (unsold) and the present hitherto unrecorded picture.
