Catalogue Note

The majority of the composition of the present work derives from Jan Brueghel the Elder's Paradise with Noah's Ark in Budapest, Szepmüveszeti Museum (see K. Ertz, Jan Brueghel der Ältere, Cologne 1979, pp.236, 246, 603, cat. no 274, reproduced fig.311, p.603).  There are also strong similarites with the work Paradise with the Creation in Besançon, Musée des Beaux-Arts (K. Ertz, op. cit., p.248, fig.323).
