PROVENANCE: The Property of a Private European Collector
The right-hand side of the present composition is derived from a work in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, which has been the subject of some debate and was once ascribed to Titian. Possibly having been cut down in the past, this latter painting was also previously thought to be by Paolo Veronese. A copy with variations is also recorded to have been in the collection of O. Kosek of Nice which has been attributed to Sustris.
