Lot Essay

The present painting is a copy after a work by Jan Breughel the Elder, now in the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, Milan. This example lacks the figure of the hermit, who appears in the lower right corner of the painting in Milan. Anton Mirou is also known to have copied Brueghel's composition (National Gallery, Prague; see K. Ertz, Jan Brueghel der Ältere (1568-1625): Kritischer Katalog der Gemälde, II, Lingen, 2008-2010, pp. 598-599, no. 278).

We are grateful to Drs Luuk Pijl for his assistance cataloging this picture.
