Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Acquired by the present owner's family approximately 20 years ago and thence by descent

    Several versions of the present composition are known to have been painted in Pieter Brueghel the Younger's studio (see: K. Ertz, Pieter Brueghel der Jüngere (1564-1637/38) (Lingen, 2000), vol. II, pp. 598-600). These include a work ascribed to a Follower of Pieter Brueghel, on copper, of identical dimensions, but without the butchery of the pig, which was in a sale, Sotheby's, London, 2 May 2012, lot 6. An attribution for the present painting to Pieter Brueghel III (Antwerp 1589-circa 1628) has been suggested.
