The Feast of Bacchus (Sine Cerere et Baccho friget Venus),
oil on panel, 61.3 x 55.2 cm, framed

European private collection

We are grateful to Klaus Ertz for confirming the attribution (written communication August 2014).

The present painting, which dates from around 1640, is an autograph replica by Jan Brueghel II that is based on a composition originally conceived in the late 1620s (formerly with Galerie Müllenmeister in Solingen; cf. K. Ertz, Jan Breughel d. J., Freren, 1984, p. 377, no. 211). In the present painting, Brueghel did not collaborate with Hendrik van Balen, who had died in 1632, but with the latter’s son, Jan. Comparing the present work with the earlier version reveals that the present composition is different along the left margin.
