- Curator's comments
- Study for a painting dated 1603 now in the Museo Civico, Pavia (Venturi, IX-4, fig. 733; Mullaly, 1963, fig. 61). The measurements of this accord with a work commissioned by Andrea di Danese Buri in 1603 for his daughter a nun in the convent of San Daniele. As the subject of the Buri painting is not specified this connection is far from certain.
