[1] Lent by Cook to the National Exhibition of Works of Art, Leeds, 1868 no. 45, in whcih the catalogue states he acquired the painting in Grenada in 1863. Fern Rusk Shapley, Paintings from the Samuel H. Kress Collection, Italian Schools, XVI-XVIII Century, London, 1973, p. 96, give the earlier provenance as The Hon. Henry Wellesley, 1st Baron Cowley, Somerset; Henry Richard Wellesley, 1st Earl Cowley, Somerset, from 1847; (his sale, Christie's, London, 18 July 1885, no. 27). However since it was owned by Cook by 1868, this is not possible.
