Ca. 1640, oil/copper/wood, 59,5 x 78,5 cm, cradled. - From the early 1640s Brueghel the Younger began to develop his own style distinct from that of his father. At the same time he often used large-size copper plates. Luuk Pijl dates this formerly unknown painting to the beginning of this period, emphasizing the outstanding quality and the excellent state of conservation. - The old testamtent theme of Susannah and the Elders was very popular among 17th century painters. It is an exemplum story of virtue, but it gave also the opportunity to an artist to depict a caste and beautiful nude woman. - Expertise: Dr. Luuk, Pijl, Dokkum, 31.
