Exhibited

Cologne, Josef Haubrich-Kunsthalle, Währe Wunder – Sammler und Sammlungen im Rheinland, November 2000 – February 2001, no. C7.

Literature

Possibly G. Bott, 'Stillebenmalerei des 17. Jahrhunderts, Isaak Soreau, Pieter Binoit,' in Kunst in Hessen und am Mittelrhein, vol. 1 and 2, cat. no. 25;
E. Greindl, Les Peintres Flamands de Nature Morte au XVIIe Siècle, Sterrebeek 1983, p. 338, cat. no. 30;
G. Bott, Die Stillebenmaler Soreau, Binoit, Codino und Marrell in Hanau und Frankfurt, Hanau 2001, p. 206, cat. no. WV.B.32, reproduced, and possibly also cat. no. WV.B.31, reproduced.

Catalogue Note

In his 2001 catalogue Bott includes two images of apparently the same painting (cat. nos WV.B.31 and WV.B.32). He seems to have known them each only on the basis of the rather poor old photographs he reproduces, so found it impossible to ascertain whether they were in fact different, or one and the same. He does provide different provenance and signature details for each work however, as well as giving an erroneous reference to Greindl's 1983 list for the former. What is certain is that this painting was sold at Sotheby's in 1978, and it is fairly certain, there being no apparent differences between it and either of the photographs reproduced, that it is identifiable with one or, more likely, both of the works published by Bott.
