Technique: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 125 x 168 cm
Generic classification: Paint
General inventari: 896
Location: National Museum of Art of Catalonia
Provenance: Museum of the Junta de Comerç. This work and its pair might well be the "excellent paintings on Testament subjects, made in Italy", acquired by the Junta de Comerç in 1788. Came to the Academy's Museum: The decision of acquiring this work dates from November 13th 1788. Observations: It was recorded in the catalogues of 1833 and 1837 as an original by Tiziano. From the Catàleg de 1847 on, it was unprecisely credited to the Italian school. It was PÉREZ SÁNCHEZ (1970) who attributed the work either to Giovanni Andra De Ferrari or to Orazio De Ferrari although CASTELNOVI challenges his statement. For further details cf B. BASSEGODA. Bonaventura Bassegoda i Hugas himself has recently argued convincingly that this work corresponds to Orazio De Ferrari and not to Andrea. On loan to the Museus d'Art de Barcelona since 1906 (inv. no. MNAC 5706). It is the pair of the work that bears the inv. no. 897 (MNAC 5703).
