Catalogue Note

Related to Gerard de Lairesse's painting of the same subject in the Staatliches Museum, Schwerin, dated to c. 1667/70, this drawing is probably a ricordo after the painting.The only main difference between the oil and the present sheet is that the animals captured in the cloth, centre right, are not included in the drawing.   Interestingly, our composition, which shares similar dimensions to the painting, has touches of red oil throughout which suggests that this sheet was created from a transfer or counterproof from the painting.
