"Attributed to Cornelis Schut" is copy after Rubens

Chiswick, from the UK, sells on 3 October 2017 an "Attributed to Cornelis Schut" Lamentation, estimated at 5,000 to 7,000 Euro.

It is a well-painted but somewhat flat copy after the Lamentation by Rubens from the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, and as such it is hard to actually attribute it to an artist. Schut was presumably a pupil of Rubens, and worked in a similar style, but the copy here is not exceptionally good or distinctive so no good reason to attach it to one name seems to be present.

The value seems a bit on the high side, but good Ruben' copies tend to fetch remarkably high prices sometimes.
