Label Copy

This large and accomplished canvas remains one of the more mysterious paintings in the Museum’s collection. It has traditionally been attributed to Sebastiano Ricci (1659–1734), an attribution often questioned, but without any consensus regarding an alternate identification of the artist. Suggestions have ranged from 16th-century Venetian painters around Veronese to 18th-century Bolognese artists. It has also been proposed that the figures are by one artist and the landscape by another. The work depicts the moment in which Christ, after forty days of fasting in the desert, was served by angels.
