Label on frame '407'.

H. Miles, in Dutch and Flemish Netherlandish and German Paintings (Glasgow Art Gallery and Museums, 1961, vol. 1, p. 83), first identified the painting as 'An enlarged copy, of relatively recent date, after an engraving by Lucas of 1524 (Hollstein, vol. 10, p.174, repr.).' This small engraving (Bartsch, A., Le Peintre-graveur, vol. 7, Vienna, 1808, no. 155) is reproduced, in its original size, in Lvcas van Leyden - Pieter Brvegel D. Ä.: Das gesamte graphische Werk: Einfürung von Jacques Lavalleye, Vienna and Munich, 1968, Lvcas van Leyden, no. 155; in older gallery catalogues as by Lucas van Leyden.
