Description The motif of the Christ Child playing with his foot while he nurses is quite charming. For more information on this painting, please see Federico Zeri's 1976 catalogue, no. 33, pp. 54-55 where he suggests that the attribution is tentative. An attribution to Niccolo da Voltri has also been suggested, but rejected by Zeri.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1911 [mode of acquisition unknown] [through Berenson]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
