About this artwork

Bought from the Mattei family in Rome in 1802, this is a good quality picture from Jacopo Bassano’s workshop. The studio included his three painter sons, Francesco, Leandro and Gerolamo and this work has, at various stages, been attributed to each of them, although the style seems closest to Francesco. A pendant painting from the same source depicting the parable of ‘Lazarus at the Feast of Dives’ is in a Scottish private collection.
