This painting is one of four known copies made in Wtewael’s workshop of his now lost original. It displays all the Mannerist characteristics for which the master was known, including vivid colors, compressed space, and contorted figures disproportionate to their surroundings. Wtewael based this work on Abraham Bloemart’s painting of the same subject, which he likely saw in an engraved reproduction. This kind of artistic borrowing through intermediary prints and subsequent copying of one’s own work helped spread new ideas about style and ideology to a wider audience.
