The illustrator of Morgan M. 383

Back in 1964 one R. Pallucchini proposed that Morgan MS. 383, a Livy in the Marciana (MS. Z. 16), and the Cronica Carrarese with the Tom Leoni lookalike were all decorated by the same abilissimo illustratore padovano. The curator's notes from the J.P. Morgan Library mention other theories.

Has anyone followed up on that in the last fifty years? It seems like the sort of thing which Malipiero would have written about, and Matt and other instructors have done more research than they have published.

I don't think there's anything about that in Malipiero.

Thanks. His book is not available to me at the moment, so knowing that he does not discuss this helps. It would obviously be very useful if trained art historians have commented on the art in print. Right now we just have a general consensus that the art would not be unusual for the first decade of the fifteenth century.
