Guy C. Bauman in The Jack and Belle Linsky Collection in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. New York, 1984, pp. 54–57, no. 17, ill. (color), catalogues it as "Attributed to Gerard David," but observes that "the depth of space here, and the style of architecture, which reveals an advanced awareness of recent architectural developments in Italy, surpass anything in David's oeuvre and argue for as late a date as possible"; suggests that it is based on a lost composition by Gerard David, perhaps a free copy after Hugo.

(color, overall and detail), ascribes it to the workshop of David, about 1520, noting that it ultimately derives from Hugo's Monteforte Altarpiece (Gemäldegalerie, Berlin) but is loosely associated with David's Adoration in the National Gallery, London; credits De Vos with the discovery, in a private collection, of the wings for our panel.
