Catalogue Note

The attribution of this intriguing painting of a prophet has continued to elude scholars.  The handling and use of color points to a French painter who has spent time in Rome, perhaps in the circle of Claude Vignon, though it has also been suggested that the artist is Italian and working in the circle of Pier Francesco Mola.
