This elegant relief recalls sculpture made in the Veneto towards the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century. Compare with the bust of St John the Evangelist by Michiel Fabris, called l'Ongaro (1644-1684) published in S. Guerriero, 'Le alterne fortune dei marmi: busti, teste di carattere e altre "Scultore moderne" nelle collezioni Veneziane tra sei e settecento', in G. Pavanello (ed.), La scultura veneta del seicento e del settecento, Venice, 2002, p. 107, fig. 6. Note also the Bust of a Girl attributed to Orazio Marinali (1643-1720) which sold at Sotheby's New York on 26 January 2007, lot 286.
