Catalogue Note

Though the authorship of this painting is not disputed, it is inscribed with a signature on the lower left (fig. 1) that appears to have been a later addition as it is not consistent with the artist's. Underneath this inscription, black text is barely visible, which may have once been the artist's signature.
