French or Flemish: 'Perseus turning the Followers of Phineus into Stone'

Explore the paintings

Phineus and his followers interrupted the wedding feast of Perseus and Andromeda; Perseus turned them to stone by means of the Gorgon's head (Ovid, 'Metamorphoses' 5).

The painting was once catalogued as by a follower of Poussin, and more recently as the work of the Flemish painter, Bertholet Flémalle.
