|Place of origin
This is a reduction of the panel from Louis XIV’s collection in the Louvre, which has also been made into an oval. The painting had always been ascribed to Christina Rossetti, but there is no record of either Dante Gabriel or his sister being admitted to copy any painting in the Louvre.
Oil painting on canvas laid down on panel, Road to Calvary (after Veronese), previously attributed to Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894), 1850 to late 19th century, after an original Veronese in the Louvre.
