Cambi, from Italy, sells on 15 November 2016 a "Cercle of Jan Brueghel II" Allegory of the seasons, estimated at 2,500 to 3,000 Euro.
It actually is an "Allegory of the Elements" (water, air, fire and earth). It is similar to many such works made by Jan Brueghel I (together with Hendrick van Balen) and Jan Brueghel II (together with Jan van Balen).
RKD). While none of the elements can be said to be directly copied, the overall effect and structure is very similar.
Stourhead, a National Trust property in Warminster.
Whether it is an original composition or based on another work is not
clear, these works were often produced in series (as the above RKD
example shows), but I haven't found other versions of this one. But it seems to me authentic, 17th century, from the circle or even the workshop of Jan Brueghel II.
The work for sale is seriously underestimated in my opinion, getting this for 2,500 Euro would be a steal, and I would estimate it at at least 10,000 Euro.
UPDATE: sold for 32,000 Euro! Seriously underestimated indeed...
