Catalogue Note

We are grateful to Prof. Riccardo Lattuada for re-endorsing the attribution to Massimo Stanzione on the basis of photographs, having previously inspected the work in the original. We are also grateful to Prof. Nicola Spinosa for suggesting an alternative attribution, to Stanzione's pupil, the Neapolitan painter Francesco Guarino (1611–1654) following first-hand inspection of the original.
