    Fry described the figures as flaccid and observed that the picture can scarcely lay claim to being more than an atelier piece ie of Pintoricchio Gnoli also considered it a workshop production Claude Phillips is quoted in the BFAC exhibition catalogue from The Daily Telegraph 7 December 1909 as regarding it as close to Pintoricchio The type of composition which derives from Verrocchio was carried to Perugia and used on occasions by Pintoricchio and Fiorenzo di Lorenzo A distinction between their work has not always met with unanimous agreement eg the Salting Virgin and Child in the National Gallery No 2483 now ascribed to Fiorenzo and of a similar composition to the Buscot Madonna An almost identical picture but with a curtain background is attributed to Fiorenzo by van Marle Development of the Italian Schools of Painting 1933 xiv p 178 fig 115 idem Vita Artistica April 1927 p 76 repd The Buscot painting is however closer to Pintoricchio than to the more firmly modelled style of Fiorenzo In 1989 Todini op cit published the picture as a late work by Bartolommeo Caporali d 1442 and lists a number of workshop replicas Todini makes a plausible case for this attribution
