Catalogue Note

Magani dates this canvas to around 1691–93, contemporaneous to Bellucci's work in Vienna in 1692, such as the cycle of four altarpieces painted for the church of Klosterneuberg. The style reflects Bellucci's formative period in Venice from the late 1670s onwards, and in particular the influence of painters such as Antonio Zanchi.
