Suggested attributions:
Old AFGA attribution: Bartolomeo Schedone?;
From the old mat and file:
Anonymous (n.d.): “No” to Schedone.
A. Clark (n.d.): 18th century, not Schedone, more like Marco Benefial;
A.S.H. (Ann Sutherland Harris, 1988) (on mat and in old file): Perhaps Annibale Carracci;
N.T.(Nicholas Turner, British Museum, from photograph sent to him): “ Yes, ther is much to suggest Annibale. I would not altogether rule out Guido Reni.”
