Catalogue Note

We are grateful to Dr. Giancarlo Sestieri who, based on photographs, has suggested a possible attribution to Michelangelo Ricciolini. Dr. Sestieri has cited similarities between the present composition and two others by Ricciolini, one of which, Samson and Delilah, is in the Galleria Spada, Rome (see G. Sestieri, Repertorio Della Pittura Romana della fine del Seicento e del Settecento, vol. III, Turin 1994, figs. 968-969.)
