Anonymous sale, London, Sotheby's, 12 December 1990, lot 180, for £13,000 to the present owner.
The composition is based, with some small variations, upon Lucas van Leydens' own engraving of 1510 (Hollstein 158, R. Vos, Lucas van Leyden, 1978, p. 179, no. 59), an original of which accompanies this lot. The style is close in handling to that of the workshop of Jan Brueghel.
