Stylistically this picture is similar to the paintings of the Bologna school. It could have been painted by Cesare Tamaroccio who was working in Bologna during the first quarter of the 16th century. The figure of the Madonna, the motif of the long shawl round her shoulders and the rendering of the folds of her garments are reminiscent of his work.

The compositional arrangement of the picture in the Pushkin Museum can be traced back to a famous altarpiece by Pietro Perugino painted in 1497 for the Church of San Giovanni in Monte in Bologna.
