This drawing was part of a series of eight-three drawings by Maes illustrating episodes from Ovid's Matamorphoses.  The drawings remained together until the Cronenburgh sale in 1762, after which they were separated into various groups.  For further information, see Janno van Tatenhove, 'Tekeningen door Jacob de Wit voor de Ovidius van Picart', Leids Kunsthistorisch Jaarboek 1985. Achttiende-Eeuwse Kunst in de Nederlanden, Delft 1987, pp. 211-234 (especially pp. 232-233, notes 36-40).
