PROVENANCE: The Property of a Private European Collector
The present composition is partly influenced by the right-hand side of Sir Peter Paul Rubens's depiction of The Lion Hunt in the Gemäldegalerie, Dresden (see: M. Jaffe, Rubens (Milan, 1989), cat. no. 343). The rearing grey horse is repeated in other compositions by Rubens and by several of his pupils and followers.
