About this artwork

This painting was acquired in Italy by Andrew Wilson on behalf of the Royal Institution in 1830, as the work of Caravaggio. It is, in fact, a copy after an original painting by the Caravaggesque painter Orazio Borgianni, also in the Scottish National gallery’s collection (NG 48).
