Footnotes

  • In a letter dated 16 April, 2001, William Jordan identified the present painting's style and repertoire of forms as being completely consistent with the works of the Pseudo-Hiepes, whom Jordan has since identified as Bernardo Polo following the discovery of a signed composition (see: 'El Pseudo-Hiepes es Bernardo Polo', in Archivo Español de Arte, LXXXII, no. 328, October-December 2009, pp. 395-403). Jordan observes that in all of these works each of the individual elements is arranged so that it is viewed from the front and are further characterised by the artist's lighting of the subject from the upper left: a typical device employed in order to divide diagonally the composition into two halves.
