Art Bulletin 58 (March 1978), pp. 16, 19, 23, figs. 15, 54 (detail), notes that the punches used in the painting come from the studio of Icilio Federico Joni [or Ioni; 1866–1946], and that the work may have been painted by Scapecchi, from whom it was purchased and who worked with Joni, or by Joni himself.

Prague, 1998, pp. 96, 171, 218, ill. pp. 96, 218 (details of punch marks), classifies the punch marks appearing in this painting, identifying them as modern imitations; tentatively attributes the picture to Federico Joni or Scapecchi.



  • Notes

    This is a reduced copy with slight variations of the left wing of Neroccio's triptych of 1476 in the Pinacoteca Nazionale, Siena. The Museum also owns a second, less accurate, copy of the original work (07.24.24).
