Brekelenkam, Quiringh Gerritsz. Van

This painting is ascribed to the school of Teniers in the royal collections, although after entering the Prado it is listed in the catalogue as an original work by that painter. This raises the question of when the signature D. Ten. on the lower right was added. The 1873 Prado publication describes this signature as apocryphal and assigns the painting to Hendryk Martensz. Rokes, called Sorgh or Zo
