On a number of occasions, Peter Paul Rubens partially overpainted finished pictures. He did this to paintings by his own hand, such as Nymphs and Satyrs (P1666), which he retouched and enlarged twenty years after he first painted it. He also made changes to drawings and paintings by other artists that he owned. This painting is an example of such reworking, albeit in a radical mode that changed th

The Virgin sits with the Christ Child in the midst of grandiose classical architecture. She is surrounded by numerous saints in various positions. Above her, some angels prepare to crown her as Queen of Heaven.

According to Ovid’s Metamorphoses, after several days’s searching for her daughter Proserpina, who had been abducted by Pluto, Ceres stopped at the house of Hecuba. There, the goddess was offered a jug of water, from which she drank greedily, provoking the laughter of the young Stellio, whom Ceres turned into a tiny lizard. This painting belonged to Rubens, a friend and admirer of Elsheimer.

The scene evokes the dances that are part of Ancient Greek history and myths and the tradition that followed - the book Hypnerotomachia Poliphili includes a description and a woodcut of a similar dance. The painting also evokes the arcadian s
