Enrico Marinucci, Rome, by 1934, as Carpaccio; [1] probably sold 1936/1937 to (Count Alessandro Contini Bonacossi [1878-1955] Rome- Florence); [2] sold to Samuel H. Kress [1863-1955] on 1 September 1939; on loan to the National Gallery of Art in 1946; gift to Portland Art Museum in 1961, no. 61.45. [1] Described and illustrated by Wilhelm Suida, "Italian Primitives in the Marinucci Collection in Rome," Apollo XX (September 1934), p. 122+, as by Carpaccio. [2] See letter dated 1 October 1936 from an Enrico Cappiello, offering pictures on behalf of Marinucci to the director of the Wiliam Rockhill Nelson Gallery (Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, curatorial file for Tanzio da Varallo, 1944.2), no. 9 as Carpaccio. It is likely that those paintings came from the collecion of Marinucci's uncle, Cardinal Pietro Gasparri [1852-1934].
