Description This painting has been attributed to Giacomo Pacchiarotti; characterised as an imitator of fifteenth century models, particularly those of his probable teacher Bernardino Fungai (c 1460-1516), as well as Matteo di Giovanni, Pietro Perugino and Luca Signorelli. Primarily active in his native Siena, Pacchiarotti also produced works for other locations in central Italy. He died at Viterbo, north of Rome. His eclectic Renaissance style is recognisable by clear linear definition, sculptural figures and harmony of design. The Russell-Cotes painting has undergone considerable conservation treatment owing to serious damage. As a result a full evaluation of style is impossible. However, the traits of harmonious design and linear definition are apparent. The panel is apparently a fragment of a larger dismembered altarpiece.
