  • Signatures, Inscriptions, and Markings

    Inscription: Recto is annotated in pen and brown ink at upper right, by an early collector, most probably Padre Sebastiano Resta: "Gerolamo Romanino Prattico / Pittore Bresciano." A long annotation in pen and brown ink below this identification of the artist, also at upper right, was erased and appears now illegible.
