The in-house experts are playing it a bit safer and have catalogued the painting as Roman School, c.1603-20. It is certainly closely associated to a later version of the same subject by the Utrecht-born painter Johannes van Bronchorst, dated 1652.

Van Bronchorst’s painting was executed soon after his return from Rome, where he was possibly inspired by a prototype that he saw during his time in the city.

Dorotheum’s work is guided at €80,000-120,000.
