Three versions of this subject are known, all basically the same in composition, but differing in treatment. The earliest, an unsigned panel in Dresden, is looser in composition, smaller in conception, and introduces genre motifs of a dog, sack and pitcher in the foreground, eliminated in subsequent versions. This painting was executed under the influence of Venetian painting, in the 17th century it was attributed to Paolo Veronese, later to Jacopo Bassano.
