After Sir Peter Paul Rubens
THE DISCOVERY OF THE INFANT ERICHTHONIUS BY THE DAUGHTERS OF CECROPS
oil on oak panel, unframed


This panel is a period copy after a painting by Rubens from 'circa' 1632–33 of which only a fragment survives in the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin (inv. no. AMAM 1944.96)1. The original painting was owned by the duc de Richelieu in the 1670s, and was cut down sometime between 1677 and 1786. Its original format however is recorded in various copies, such as the present work.
