Guilliam Forchondt the Younger worked as an artist and a dealer in the second half of the seventeenth century. Like his father, he actively exported his small copper paintings, many of which were inspired by the work of Antwerp artists, to Spain and Latin America. The present work follows a larger painting from 1606 by Jan Brueghel the Elder and Hendrik de Clerck in the Museo del Prado, Madrid (inv. no. P001401).1 1. Oil on copper, 51 by 64 cm.
