More About this Item

Description: The model for the copper plate from the studio of Rubens is an oil sketch by the master, today held in the Museum Rockoxhuis in Antwerp. This oil sketch assisted in the preparation of an altar painting for the Church of St. Michael in Gent which Rubens was unable to execute. The commission was instead taken over by van Dyck, one of his early pupils. The present copper plate took on Rubens composition in the oil sketch with only a few small variations. In a letter to the previous owner of the painting, Prisca Valkeneers from the Rubenianum, Antwerp, attributed it to the studio of Rubens. It will subsequently be registered in the forthcoming Addenda-volume of the Corpus Rubenianum.
