Related painting exhibited as Hammer Collection at Greenville S.C., Bob Jones University, 1957 as Bril and Rottenhammer: copper, 25 x 34.
Ertz had dated this to 1600 or after, but the Munich catalogue argues for an earlier date (1595-97), as had Schlichtenmaier on the basis of the Rottenhammer elements. I agree that the landscape seems very early but I don't see how the flowers could have been done in Rome/Milan or just after Jan returned to Antwerp. I am therefore using 1600 as a compromise date. The angels and flowers are clearly related to the Milan Winter Landscape with Angels Strewing Flowers, although the date of that is also disputed.
