Catalogue Note

Another slightly larger version of this composition by Bredael is recorded by Ertz in a Parisian private collection. That copper bears a false Jan Brueghel signature and the date 1600, while the date on the town hall on the right of the design is similarly missing, but the staffage remains the same.
