This work is likely a copy after Rubens’s oil sketch for the Triumph of the Eucharist tapestry series. Isabella, daughter of King Phillip II of Spain, commissioned the tapestries for a royal monastery in Madrid. The finished tapestries still hang there today, and the original oil sketch is in the Museo del Prado, Madrid.
