Provenance: Museum of the former Junta de Comerç. Restaurations: restored by Asturiol workshop in 1978 Exhibitions: València, Museu de Belles Arts (2005) “José Vergara 1726-1729. Del tardobarroco al clasicismo dieciochesco”, núm. 13. Note: In 1788 Pasqual-Pere Moles commissioned from Josep Vergara a copy of a Holy Family by Raphael Sanzio, which was also the property of the Canon of Valencia Vicent Blasco (Alcolea [Gil], vol. I, pp. 114-115). Josep Camaron had already made a copy of a Joan de Joanes out of this collection, which is currently in the Academy's Museum (inv. no. 157). For unknown reasons, Vergara probably suggested to copy this eccehomo instead of the work he had been commissioned. The original of this painting is now in the Fine Arts Museum Sant Pius V of Valencia and there is an identical version in the Museo del Prado of Madrid. In 1932 it was loaned to the Comissió Provincial de Monuments Històrics i Artístics de Barcelona (bearing no. 42 of the list of works on loan) from where it was recovered years later.
