Catalogue Note

In correspondence with the owner, Richard Cocke accepted the attribution to Veronese and pointed out that the rapid and free handling, with many pentimenti, is characteristic of the artist's late studies, such as the Adoration of the Magi (Paris, Louvre) and Christ Washing the Apostles' Feet (Berlin, Staatliche Museen).The schematic treatment of several of the heads, in which the features are indicated by crossed strokes, is also typical of Veronese.  Although several paintings of the subject are recorded in Terisio Pignatti's monograph, none of them corresponds with the poses studied on this sheet.
