    Pauwels Casteels was active in Antwerp in the third quarter of the 17th century. Best known for his depictions of battles, he also produced large-scale mythological and allegorical scenes, many of Bacchanalia.

    We are grateful to Dr. Bert Schepers for proposing the attribution to Casteels on the basis of a photograph.
