Follower of Leytens or Van Heil

Horta, from Brussels, sells on 17 January 2017 a "Flemish School, 17th century, in the style of Joos de Momper" Massacre of the Innocents, estimated at 10,000 to 15,000 Euro.

I really can't see much influence of Momper here, the work is made by a follower of Gijsbrecht Leytens or Daniel van Heil, as evidenced in the typical contorted, snow-clad trees. As can be seen in the above Massacre of the Innocents by Leytens, it lacks their quality though, and the estimate seems very optimistic. I can't see this going for more than 5,000 Euro.

UPDATE: unsold, and now again for sale at Horta on 24 April 2017 with a much more realistic estimate of 4,000 to 6,000 Euro.
