This painting was formerly thought to be the original painting of the Doge by Leandro Bassano. However, it is now believed to be a copy. It is identical in composition to the original except that it shows less at the bottom and a little less on the left which may be a result of it having been cut down. It may well be a contemporary copy rather than a replica by the artist.
