An expert's report is available by Dr Klaus Ertz , Lingen, February 2022.

The scene illustrates the Greek myth according to which Persephone, the daughter of Ceres, the goddess of fertility, is abducted against her will by Pluto, ruler of the underworld. The first painting of this scene was created by the two above-mentioned painters in 1610. The painting (39  x 53cm) is held in the collections of the Royal pavilion & Museum Trust, Brighton. The version on offer for sale here is significantly larger, but the composition and the figurations are identical.
