Catalogue Note

Although previously attributed to Cornelis van Poelenburch (1594/5-1667), Horst Gerson was the first who (verbally) suggested the attribution to Van der Lisse in 1964.

This painting is evidently related to a composition by Poelenburch in the Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen (inv. no. 549), which is signed and dated 1659.[1] A signed version of the same scene by Van der Lisse is in the Gemäldegalerie, Berlin. [2]
