In the Hermitage this painting was held to be the work of Ribera and later to be a work of the Caravaggio school. R Longhi (1926) attributed it to Guercino, Sterling to Orazio Gentileschi, Pallucchini to an anonymous French master, Nicholson to Orazio Riminaldi, Brejon de Lavergnée to Nicholas Tournier. The attribution to Caroselli was determined by V.E.Markova.
