14 Oil on copper, signed "C. P. See also Schaar, op. cit., p. 35, and the exhibition Nederlandse 17e Eeuwse Italianiserende Landschapschilders at the Centraal Museum Utrecht, March-May 1965 (cat. no. 12). This picture was also included in the exhibition Dutch Pictures from The Royal Collection in 1971-1972 at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace (cat. no. 43).

15 The Miraculous Rod of Moses and the three companion works were recorded in the inventory of the collection as early as 1638, but strangely enough (like its pendants) without a name, though surely conceived for Cosimo II, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, when Poelenburgh worked for him in Florence. The four copper panels were included in the exhibition organized by Marco Chiarini in the Pitti Palace, Florence, and illustrated in the catalogue Artisti alla Corte Granducale (Florence: May-July 1969), nos 34-37. Three are illustrated and discussed in Schaar, op. cit., figs 16, 17, 18.
