Having examined the original, Peter van den Brink links this travelling altar with the one in the Bob Jones collection, hitherto attributed to Jan Swart van Groningen (circa 1500-1560) (Inv. No. P.51.1, see Kennedy, Trinita / Nolan, Jone: A Divine Light. Northern Renaissance Paintings from the Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery, Nashville 2011, Cat No. 3, pp. 48-49). Dr. John Hand, on the basis of a photograph, sees stylistic parallels with the Mannerism of Antwerp circa 1520-30.
