    Owner Name: Titian

    In possession from: 1510 to 1510

    Location: Venice

    Notes:

    The attribution to Titian was suggested in the life of the artists by Giorgio Vasari in his second edition of his "Vite" [1568], even though Vasari had also attributed the painting to Giorgione in his life of Giorgione. Art historians have not been unanimous in their attributions to Titian or Giorgione.
