Jean-Pierre Cuzin. "New York: French Seventeenth-century Paintings from American Collections." Burlington Magazine 124 (August 1982), p. 530, in his discussion of Rosenberg's appendix [see Ref. 1982] notes that neither this picture nor the one in Sarasota could be by Bellange and that the two pictures could not be from the same hand.
