Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Monsieur Guerrin (according to a label on the reverse)

    The present painting follows the composition of part of the left side of a drawing that is now in the Getty Museum, Malibu. The drawing is a study for a painting commissioned by Ferdinando Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua. The painting, however, was never executed and a letter dated 29 March 1623 exists from Morazzone to the Duke's chancellor apologising for not having been able to start the picture. A further copy of the right hand section was sold at Christie's London, 7 April 1995, lot 191. An oil modello of the composition also exists in a Roman private collection (see: M. Gregori, Pier Francesco Mazzucchelli detto il Morazzone, exh. cat. (Varese, 1962), no. 81, pl. 219).
