  • PROVENANCE:
    The Property of a Private European Collector

    The composition of the group of Europa and the Bull with the two putti relates closely to a signed etching by Gerard de Lairesse, although the head of the bull is facing forwards in the etching and his legs are in a different position (Coburg, Kunstsammlungen der Veste, inv. no. VIII, 328,53).
