Catalogue Note

Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) designed the projects in 1630-1635 and seven of these canvases used as models are at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The eighth is part of the collections at the Prado Museum in Madrid.
This tapestry is comparable to one produced by the workshop of Guillaume van Leefdael's father, Jan, kept at Rubens House in Antwerp, Belgium.
