Lot Essay

The composition of this painting ultimately derives from an oil sketch by Pieter Bruegel the Elder in the Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen. A very similar painting attributed by Klaus Ertz to Hieronymus Francken the Younger is in the collection of the Museum Mayer van den Bergh, Antwerp (loc. cit., pp. 249, 256, no. 197, fig. 187).
