Catalogue Note

This painting was traditionally attributed to Paolo Antonio Barbieri, the brother of Guercino, but an attribution to Pier Francesco Cittadini has been proposed by Cottino (see Literature). Cottino relates the picture to a painting in the Pinacoteca Civica of Cento, 'The Kitchen Worker,' which had also been called Barbieri but was recently re-attributed to Cittadini by Daniele Benati. Cottino dates the present work to Cittadini's mature period, when the artist was living in Rome.
