Catalogue Note

This work has previously been sold attributed to Gerrit Adriaensz. Berckheyde. However both J. Nieuwstraten and M. de Kinkelder from the Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie have attributed the landscape to Adriaen Hendricksz. Verboom. The figures, in particular the group on the right, are believed to be by Gerrit Adriaensz Berckheyde. The work should dated to Berckheyde's early period, around 1655, judging by the costume of the couple on the left.

A copy of this work, attributed to Verboom and Berckheyde, and measuring 59.1 by 72.4 cm., was sold New York, Christie's, 4 October 2007, lot 44.
