Notes: Relined. Restored. Minor damage to frame; The attribution of the present work to Egbert van Heemskerck the younger was made some time ago. At the RKD, Den Haag, W. van de Watering corrected the former attribution to Richard Brakenburgh in the catalogue of the exhibition 1930 (see below) to an attribution to Heemskerck, which was confirmed by Fred G. Meijer in 1986 and recently by Ellis Dullaart. Egbert van Heemskerck the Younger was focused on still life paintings, further he was interested in the representation of fairs and festivals of typical English local atmosphere and satirical and burlesque scenes. His work is very similar to his fathers paintings. But Egbert van Heemskerck the Younger preferred larger formats, his brushstrokes can be characterized as fast and spirited, cleary noticable in the figures; Statement from Ellis Dullaart MA, RKD, The Hague, 26 August 2020: confirmation of the attribution to Egbert van Heemskerck, the Younger. The painting was included in the RKD database under number 298410.
