Published by Georges Marlier, Ambrosius Benson, 1957, Cat. Nr. 197

Georges Marlier identified 24 paintings (amongst which ours) by an until now anonymous painter, active in Bruges, that stands stylistically in between Benson and Isenbrandt.

Ambrosius Benson was born in Lombardy, possibly in Milan. He probably arrived in Bruges in 1518 and remained here until his death in 1550. His clair-obscur is typical of Italy, his execution was strong and sculptural, he painted warm carnations and big dark eyes. It is not known where Adriaen Isenbrandt was born, possibly in Holland. His style was much more fluid, feminine, soft and subtle (sfumato) than Benson’s.
