Lot Essay

This attractive seventeenth century composition copies the panel of The Temptation of Saint Anthony by another follower of Jheronimus Bosch in the Van Lanschot collection, ‘s-Hertogenbosch of circa 1530-40, measuring 60 x 52 cm. (exhibited in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Het Noordbrabants Museum, Jheronimus Bosch: Visioenen van een genie, 13 February - 8 May 2016, no. 47, pp. 156, no. 89, p. 187, p. 157 illustrated). The Van Lanschot picture served with certainty as an example for the present lot, as the darker circular shape in the upper right background, which is part of the underlying depiction of half a century earlier in the Van Lanschot painting, is depicted in the present lot. With age this had apparently become visible through the paint layers at the time of the execution, and was not recognized as such by the artist of the present lot.
