The present work is a copy with variations after a large painting by Theodoor Rombouts (1597-1637) in the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest (180 by 230 cm.; inv. no. 2014.2). A similar work was sold, Sotheby's London, 25 October 2018, lot 471 (as "Follower of Theodoor Rombouts", oil on canvas, 117.8 by 168 cm.). Other repetitions of the composition, with some differences, have been sold over the years. Some of these cite Rubens' painting of the same subject in the Institute of Arts, Detroit (inv. no. 89.63), as their source, but the compositions do not correspond (see M. van der Meulen, Rubens copies after the antique. Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard, vol. 3, Brussels 1989, pp. 134-136, under no. 42).
