Walter A. Liedtke. Flemish Paintings in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. New York, 1984, vol. 1, pp. 262–64; vol. 2, pl. 101, accepts Klinge's dating [see Ref. 1980]; notes that "Teniers, in a manner quite consistent with that of Aertsen and his followers, intended a pointed comparison, here, between everyday life in his own time and in that of Herod"; disagrees with Virch's identification [see Ref. 1970] of the MMA panel with a work formerly in the Vrancken collection.
