Provenance

Enrico Marinucci, Rome; [1] (Count Alessandro Contini Bonacossi [1878-1955] sold to Samuel H. Kress [1863-1955] on 1 June 1936 as Maestro Esiguo; gift to Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, no. 1961.9.17. [1] Some paintings from Marinucci's collection were sold at Anderson Gallery, New York, 7-8 May 1923, but this does not appear to be among them. Also not included in Wilhelm Suida, "Italian Primitives in the Marinucci Collection in Rome," Apollo XX (September 1934), p. 122+. Nor does it appear to be included in a letter dated 1 October 1936 from an Enrico Cappiello, offering pictures on behalf of Marinucci to the director of the Wiliam Rockhill Nelson Gallery (Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, curatorial file for Tanzio da Varallo, 1944.2, copy NGA curatorial records). It is likely that those paintings came from the collection of Marinucci's uncle, Cardinal Pietro Gasparri [1852-1934].
