THE TRIUMPH OF DAVID
Painted during the time Feti spent in Mantua. The figure of David is, in all probability, a 'hidden' portrait of a Mantuan courtier.
A copy of the picture in the Pushkin Museum is to be found in the Besançon Museum.
Provenance: assumed to have come from the Gonzaga Gallery in Mantua; later held in the Royal Gallery of Charles I at Hampton Court from which it was sold in 1641 and transferred to France, where it initially belonged to Abbot Lemoine, a doctor at the Sorbonne (Paris) and then to Pierre Croz (Paris); acquired for the Hermitage in 1772; in the Pushkin Museum since 1930.
