Prof. Spinosa compares this canvas with a painting of the same subject, painted for a chapel in the Palazzo Reale, Caserta, where it remains today.1 The Caserta canvas is the latest recorded painting of the artist's career, completed in 1789.
We are grateful to Prof. Spinosa for suggesting the attribution upon first-hand inspection.
