  • Curator's comments

    The print reproduces a drawing in the National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh (see R.-A. d'Hulst, 'Jordaens Drawings', Brussels-London-New York, 1974, p. 341, no. A257, fig. 273). For another impression of this plate see R,2.73.

    There are seven etchings attributed to Jacob Jordaens (Hollstein 1-3, 5-7 and 9), also described in D'Hulst catalogue (pp.132-136). Although these are all lettered with Jordaens as the designer ('inventor'), they are traditionally considered as also made by him.

    Lit.: R.-A. D'Hulst, 'Jacob Jordaens (1593-1678), volume II: Drawings and Prints', Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp, 1993, nos. B93-99.
