Judged by many to be by Rubens, as the Venus is recognized as a favorite portrait with him. The three females also resemble his three wives. By others supposed to be a copy of Titian, though the style is undoubtedly that of Rubens. [P. 16 (L).] It is a Rubens without question, and must be an original or fine copy. [P. 16 (S); a note by a contemporary hand reads: "See Kugler."]
