Notes

This painting can be compared stylistically to a work by Pieter Huys in the Louvre, signed and dated 1547, also representing the temptation of St. Anthonyυ1. Pieter Huys rearranged his Bosch-like compositions as needed using similar elements in several different compositions. The present painting comes close in composition to a painting formerly in the Abraham van Stolk collection in Rotterdam. υ2
