    We are grateful to Fred Meijer of the RKD, The Hague, for suggesting the attribution to Johan Christiaan Roedig on the basis of firsthand inspection. Roedig enjoyed a successful career reproducing the compositions of contemporary still-life painters, such as Paul Theodor van Brussel, who created the prototypes for the present works, now in the Art Institute of Chicago.
