Note: The original of this work survives in the Galeria Doria Pamphilii, Rome and it is a double portrait in which the second figure presumably depicts Agostino Beazzano. However, Puiguriguer probably painted it from the copy in the Museo del Prado of Madrid, of 0,68 x 0,57 (inv. no. 304) where the copy of Beazzano's portrait is also housed. (inv. no. 305)|
