    Sale, Christie's, London, 4 December 1964

    Max Friedländer suggests that Cornelis Massys was responsible for some of the landscapes in the paintings of his father, Quentin Massys, whilst he was active in his studio in the last years of his life (see M. Friedländer, Die Altniederländische Malerei (Leiden, 1934), Quentin Massys, vol. VII, p. 75). It is therefore entirely possible that he could have done the same for his younger brother Jan.
