We are grateful to Klaus Ertz for confirming the attribution of the present painting to Jan Brueghel II. He dates it in the early 1630’s.
A written certificate (March 2019) is available. The flowers in the precious guilded tazza have been executed in the manner of Jan Brueghel I. An earlier tazza (circa 1620) has been painted in collaboration between father and son (see K. Ertz, Jan Brueghel der Ältere, Lingen 2008–2010, p. 958, no. 452).
