Berchem painted many compositions of this type. It does not seem to be of sufficient quality to be an original work by Berchem.

Alistair Brown of Art UK has added: 'You may be interested that a version of the composition appeared at Christie's in 2004 https://bit.ly/3zBhnx1. Checking RKD, the composition also appeared in reverse at an auction in Vienna in 2011 https://bit.ly/2S6Kk30. For reference, the version sold in Vienna is now here https://bit.ly/3zAGsYV.' [It has now been accepted by the Collection as after Berchem, but they wished to see a public discussion to try to find out more]

Jacinto Regalado,

There is a 1750 French print after the original, then in the collection of the Marquis d'Argenson:

A painted copy, thought to be latter 18th century, is here:

This Sheffield copy is too crude to be by Berchem, and might be 19th century.

Jacinto Regalado,

I think the question posed has been answered by print evidence.

Please support your comments with evidence or arguments.
