|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: In the catalogues of 1833 and 1837 it was recorded as an original by Tiziano and from the Catàleg de 1847 on, it was credited to the Italian school, more precisely, to the Bolognese one. It was PÉREZ SÁNCHEZ (1970) who attributed this 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 5703). It is the pair of the work that bears the inv. no. 896 (MNAC 5706).|
