    This composition is inspired by A village street in the Gemäldegalerie, Kassel (see B. Schnackenburg, Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister Gesamtkatalog, Mainz am Rhein, 1996, p.72, no. GK 54), previously ascribed to Jan Breughel I and now given to Jan Breughel II, though a now-lost prototype by Jan I is likely to have existed.
