(Count Alessandro Contini-Bonacossi, Rome); [1] sold March 1932 to the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, New York; [2] gift 1937 to NGA.

[1] The first reference to the painting, in a letter by Roberto Longhi of 1929, a copy of which is in NGA curatorial files, does not mention the painting’s location, although Longhi’s opinion may have been solicited by Contini-Bonacossi.
[2] The bill of sale that includes the painting, which is listed as Portrait of a Man with Flag by Jacopo Tintoretto, is dated 4 March 1932; copy in NGA curatorial files. A handwritten annotation reads "on records as: Dosso Dossi or Jacopo Tintoretto or Francisco Mazzola."
