This painting is one of the largest and most ambitious of Grimmer's church interiors. Having commenced his career following the example of his father Jacob and Pieter Bruegel the Elder in depicting country views, allegories and proverbs, Abel Grimmer began painting church interiors in 1595, inspired by the work of the pioneer in this genre, Hendrick van Steenwijck, who was also living in Antwerp until 1586. Very few of Grimmer's interior scenes are signed and dated, leading to many misattributions, as is the case with the present work, previously believed to be by Pieter Neefs I with figures by Frans Francken II.
