While in the Khomyakov collection and in the Rumyanstev Museum, this painting was thought to be a work by Pellegrino Tibaldi; it was finally attributed to Camillo Procaccini by V.E.Markova. The same composition has been used in a large-format copy in which four musician angels floating in the clouds have been added at the top (Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan).
