An attribution to Claudio Ridolfi has been made for this painting; (Verona about 1570 - Corinaldo 1644) on stylistic bases.

In fact, the painting shows strong influences by Federico Barocci, of whom Ridolfi was a pupil, combined with clear references to the Venetian culture of the sixteenth century. In particular it is interesting to note the scenographic setting of the scene dramatically represented; in the shade of the sumptuous damask curtain, a clear reference to the compositions of Veronese's altarpieces, as is evident in the comparison with Caliari's canvas of the same subject, exhibited in Genoa in the Palazzo Rosso Museum.
