Follower of Sir Peter Paul Rubens
THE CORONATION OF SAINT CATHERINE

Catalogue Note

A much reduced derivation of Rubens' altarpiece painted for the church of the Augustinian fathers in Malines (The Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo, Ohio), for which a drawing also exists (Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam).1 There are numerous copies after the composition, due in large part to several engravings made after Rubens' original painting, though the present work differs from these in its exclusion of the arched bower above the Virgin's throne.2

1. Inv. no. 1950.272; see The Toledo Museum of Art. European Paintings, Toledo 1976, pp. 146–47, reproduced in colour p. 86, pl. VI, and p. 248, pl. 102.
2. See C.G.V. Schneevoogt, Catalogue des estampes gravées d'après P.P. Rubens, Haarlem 1873, cat. nos 36–39.
