Catalogue Note

According to Adriana Augusti in Polacco and Martini's publication cited above, the work was painted during Giordano's last stay in Venice, and is datable to after 1675–76 on the basis of stylistic comparisons (see Polacco and Martini 2000, p. 112). We are grateful to Professor Giuseppe Scavizzi for endorsing the attribution to Giordano upon inspection of photographs.
