Rest on the Flight into Egypt, after the work held by The Pitti Palace, Florence, a 17th century copy, unsigned, oil on oak panel, 18-1/2 x 24 in.; gilt wood frame, 24-1/2 x 30-1/4 x 2-1/8 in.

Provenance: Purchased in Orvieto, Italy in 2016; The Estate of Dr. J. Clayton Davie and Family

Note: This copy is based on the 17th century engraving of the painting where the subject matter is shown in reverse to the original. In reference to an engraving of this subject, The Metropolitan Museum states, "Van Dyck painted several variations of this subject, and the one closest to this print is now at the Pitti Palace, Florence. The version that belonged to Sir Robert Walpole, hung at Houghton, was bought by Catherine the Great in 1779 and is now at the Hermitage, is titled Madonna with Partridges. Instead of putti in the sky, two birds fly over the dancing putti and sunflowers grow behind the Virgin."
