The Holy Family, by Girolamo Bastarolo (c1536-1589).

Oil on panel, 38cm by 27.5cm.

This small painting, and PIC268 (The Holy Family, Venetian School, circa 1600), were acquired from The Zambricari Palace in Bologna by Brownlow, 9th Earl of Exeter (1725-1793).

Bastarolo studied with Dosso Dossi (c1489-1542) and worked mainly in his native Ferrara at the court of Alfonso II d’Este.
