Footnotes

  • Franz Werner von Tamm often had other artists to assist him in painting the figures. In this instance it is possible that Peter van Strudel (1660-1714) assisted him, and on other occasions Carlo Maratta and Calandrucci were also known to help out. He used the same composition of figures in a painting sold at Sotheby's, London, 22 April 2004, lot 106.

    Von Tamm, after training in Hamburg under Johann Joachim Pfeiffer, was resident in Rome between 1685 and 1695, during which time the present work was executed. Working with Karel van Vogelaer, he adopted Italian stylistic elements, adding them to the Flemish influences of Frans Snyders and Jan Fyt. His somewhat dark heavy colours and thick application of paint from this period are reminiscent of pictures by Giovanni Battista Ruoppolo.
