Please note that the estimates for this lot should read £200,000-300,000 and not as listed in the printed catalogue.
Please note the following amendment to the provenance: Zelotti should read abbot Luigi Celotti. Please also note the following additional literature: M. Lucco in 'Bartolomeo Cincani detto Montagna', Treviso 2014, cat. no. 105, as possibly a copy after Benedetto Montagna. We are grateful to Dottor Antonio Mazzotta, post-doctoral fellow at the University of Milan, for endorsing the attribution to Bartolomeo Montagna following first-hand inspection.
Please note that following the death of the 19th Earl, the painting passed to his widow Marguerite (d. 1968), who sold it to Agnew's in 1955.
Please note that this work is displayed in an Italian, carved and gilded cassetta frame from circa 1600 which has been kindly lent to us by Arnold Wiggins & Sons. Should you wish to purchase this frame please contact the Old Master Paintings department.
Please note this painting has been requested for a forthcoming exhibition on the artist to be held at the Gemäldegalerie in Dresden in the Spring of 2017.
The last line of provenance should read "From where offered...", rather than "From where sold...", as stated in the printed catalogue.
We are grateful to Sara Catala for sharing her opinion that these paintings, together with other similar works that are considered by the Wildenstein Institute as early Roman period works by Hubert Robert and which will be published as such in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné on the artist, are the work of an as yet unidentified painter.
