Catalogue Note

This painting follows the composition of a Saint Andrew in the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire, Narbonne, published by Nicola Spinosa as a copy after a lost original, thought to date after 1630.1 On the basis of digital images, Spinosa does not exclude the possibility that the present lot may be autograph.
