  • PROVENANCE:
    Private Collection, Southern California
    Sale, Sotheby's, London, 14 January 1988, lot 64 (as Circle of Cornelis van Cleve)
    Acquired by the present owner's family approximately 20 years ago and thence by descent

    The present composition is derived from the original work by Cornelis van Cleve which is now in the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp. A further, weaker version was with Sotheby's, London, 16 July 1980, lot 71.

    We are grateful to Peter van den Brink for confirming that the present painting is an excellent workshop variant of the Antwerp original, on the basis of a high resolution photograph.
