This tapestry can with certainty be attributed to Hendrik II Reydams (d. 1719). It belongs to a scattered set, originally from the Marques de Bellpuig, Ca'n Puig, Palma de Mallorca, (sold Christie's house sale, 24-25 May 1997, lot 334) where five tapestries bore his signature. Further, a set of tapestries depicting Landscapes with Scenes of the Life of Saint Norbertus in the abbey of Tongerlo, Belgium, with identical borders to the offered lot is signed 'H.REYDAMS FECIT 1676'.
Born in 1650 in Brussels, Hendrik II Reydams (d. 1719) took over the workshop of his father, Hendrik I Reydams, after his death in 1669. He received his guild privilege in 1671 and married Catharina Leyniers, daughter of the cartoon painter Daniel Leyniers, in 1675. He became the Dean of the Brussels weavers guild in 1698 and owned five looms in 1703. He entered an association agreement with the cousin of this wife, Urbanus Leyners and a brother of the latter, Daniel II, in 1712.
