Studio of Joachim Anthonisz Wtewael, ‘Lot and his Daughters’, Christie's Old Masters

A version of a signed and dated original by Wtewael in the Staatliche Museen, Bodemuseum, Berlin. Our thanks to Anne W. Lowenthal for examining this painting in person. Dr. Lowenthal observed that while 'the quality is quite good' of the present painting, it is generalized, less detailed, and lacks the refinement of the Berlin panel. Thus, she concludes, that while 'it's close to the master,' it is 'in my opinionnot good enough to give to the master himself' (written correspondence, 30 November 2012).
