Charles Sterling. The Metropolitan Museum of Art: A Catalogue of French Paintings. Vol. 1, XV–XVIII Centuries. Cambridge, Mass., 1955, p. 58, ill., catalogues it as by an "Unknown Painter, 1570"; observes that the artist was certainly influenced by Corneille de Lyons, though one need not assume that the picture was painted in Lyons as Corneille's influence was already widespread by 1570, the inscribed date.
