Catalogue Note

Several copies appear to exist of a primary version done by Adriaen van Ostade. See for instance one by Cornelis Dusart which was sold, London, Sotheby's, 18 February 1987, lot 57, and one by Cornelis Mahu, which was sold, Amsterdam, Christie's, 7 October 1995, lot 24. The present painting is yet another version with slight differences, but quite rare for Victorijns, because he rarely signed his paintings.

The panel maker Ambrosius Engelants was active in Antwerp since 1625. We are grateful to Jørgen Wadum for indentifying this mark (written communication 2 October 2007).
