Catalogue Note

We are grateful to Fred G. Meijer of the Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie, The Hague, for endorsing the attribution to Pieter van Boucle on the basis of a photograph.  Drs. Meijer believes the painting is probably a relatively late work, but does not exclude that it could have been executed in the 1650s.

Van Boucle is first recorded in Paris in 1623 with his father Charles (probably identifiable with the engraver Carel van Boeckel who qualified as a master in the Antwerp guild in 1603).  It is thought that Pieter van Boucle may have been a pupil of Frans Snyders, whose style he closely emulates, though there is no documentary evidence in Antwerp to support this. He appears to have remained in Paris and worked there until his death in 1673.
