Inscribed on verso of lining, at upper center, in red chalk, "K 701". Inscribed in graphite by János Scholz, "Bassano, Jacopo / publ Tietze."
Giuseppe Vallardi (1784-1863 Lugt 1223), MIlan; Grossjean, Paris (according to Janos Scholz records); from whom purchased in 1937 by János Scholz, New York (no mark, see Lugt S. 2933b).

Although published by Tietze and Tietze-Conrat as the work of Jacopo Bassano, the drawing is more likely by one of his sons, perhaps Leandro.
