Migeon Others have looked towards Pollaiuolo or towards the Paduan school, and Dr. Bode compared it with the works of Maffeo Olivieri. In the absence of any definite argument to the contrary, I have kept to the old attribution, letting the beauty of the statuette speak for itself." Seymour de Ricci. (op. cit.)
