Karin Wolfe, to whom we are grateful, does not endorse the attribution to Trevisani, noting that some particular features of the anatomy and pose of the figure such as the hard angle of the bent wrist with the dagger, the attenuated neck, and the closed hand with the precisely rendered thumbnail, do not appear in the rest of the artist's œuvre.
