Dr. Everett Fahy has confirmed the attribution of the present painting to Giovanni Antonio Sogliani.  It appears likely that the panel once formed part of a devotional diptych with a like-sized painting of Christ Carrying the Cross (illustrated below left) once on the London art market(Attributed to Domenico Puligo,  Phillips, London, July 4, 2000, lot 119).
