An Art UK Art Detective discussion in 2021–2023 about a possible artist and date did not reach a recommended conclusion but formed a general view that the painting is likely to be seventeenth-century Neapolitan school, with the specific suggestion of Giovanni Ricca (1603–1656) as artist. That was being further pursued with an Italian source but lacking response by the time the matter had to close.
