    Literature
    E. Negro & N. Roio, Bartolomeo Schedoni 1578-1615, Modena, 2000, Appendice, p. 109, cat. no. 54A, ill.
    C. Huchet de Quénetain and M. Weil-Curiel, 'An inventory of the art collection of Etienne-Nicolas Dutartre de Bourdonné, 1782', in Burlington Magazine, May 2020, listed as no. 72, ill. p. 401

    Prof. Emilio Negro and Dottssa Nicosetta Roio date the present work to Schedoni's last years in Parma when Correggio's influence is apparent both in the tender pose of St Francis and the Christ Child and in the sfumato handling. They suggest a possible collaboration between the artist and his Parmese pupil Luigi Amidano whose figures share similarities with those in the present work. Documents record a painting by Schedoni in the Farnese collection described as 'The Blessed Virgin with Child adored by St Francis and St Joseph', (one braccio and 7 once high, one braccio and 3 once wide) (see: F. Strazzullo, Le manifatture d'arte di Carlo di Borbone, Napoli, 1979).
