- Curator's comments
- There is a painting of the same subject and composition by Bruegel dated 1567 in Munich. Bastelaer, Lebeer and Hollstein all mention a state of this print with Hieronymus Cock's address on it, but Riggs could find no impression of this state and does not believe that the print was published by Cock.
