    Notes:

    Francesco Assonica also owned a house in Venice near Santa Maria Zobenigo, and built a substantial house in Padua in the mid-1550s. The specific location of his collection, and of this painting, is unknown, but many scholars speculate that his home near Padua served as the likely setting.
