"Italo-Flemish painter" is copy after Maerten de Vos

Lempertz, from Germany, sells on 16 May 2018 an "Italo-Flemish Master, 16th century" Scenes from the live of the virgin, estimated at 15,000 to 17,000 Euro.

At least two of the three panels, the Flight into Egypt and the meeting with Elizabeth, are copies after engravings by Maerten de Vos. Considering that the prints date to ca. 1598, it may be more likely that the paintings are 17th century than 16th century. The estimate seems a bit optimistic, even though they are fairly good copies and in a nice frame.
