Dr. Werner Schade confirmed the paintings as authentic works by Lucas Cranach the Younger and suggests they once formed parts of a small altarpiece. The couple married in 1560, Agnes Countess von Barby died nine years later, in 1569. The work must have been painted sometime during these nine years.
Confirmed by Dr. Werner Schade, Berlin.
