Workshop of Pieter Brueghel the Younger (Antwerp circa 1564-1638)
The Bird Trap
oil on panel
38 x 56.5cm (14 15/16 x 22 1/4in).
- Please note that the present composition is particularly unusual among the numerous versions of The Birdtrap in that it includes the figures of Joseph leading Mary on a Mule in the centre ground to the left. This almost unique element is also found in Pieter Brueghel the Younger's version which was formerly in the Coppée Collection, Brussels (panel, 40 x 56 cm., signed and dated 1626).
