About this artwork

This painting was acquired as by Titian and subsequently catalogued under his name. The paint surface is now too seriously damaged for any reliable consideration of the picture from a stylistic viewpoint, but there is nothing to suggest it is by any sixteenth-century Venetian artist in Titian's immediate circle, while the technique raises the serious possibility that it is a seventeenth century pastiche.
