Catalogue Note

In his characteristically caustic review of D'Hulst's books on Jordaens' paintings and drawings, and notwithstanding the fact that the former is a selective monograph and not a comprehensive catalogue raisonné, Michael Jaffé (see under Literature) draws the reader's attention to a number of paintings that the reviewer felt had been unwisely overlooked, including the present work.  Jaffé assumed that the 1734 sale in The Hague was that of Jacob Jordaens. 

There is a preliminary drawing for the figure of Venus in the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York (inv. no. A 98v).
