This work is the other version of a painting kept in a Swiss private collection (exhibition catalogue: Seule la peinture... Pierre Brebiette (1598 ?-1642), Orléans, Musée des Beaux-Arts, 2001-2002, p. 91, No. 80, repr. p. 1), which is smaller (canvas, 50.5 x 61 cm) and has some variations (two sunflowers on the left, different sky, darker colour range, more basic landscape).
Other works by Brebiette related to this composition are known:
- An etching bearing Quesnel's excudit and dated 1636, in which Saint Joseph is absent but in which a lamb is depicted and the landscape is more complex.
- A drawing - in reverse - in sanguine in a private collection (13 x 17.5 cm, Piguet sale in Geneva, 26 September 2018), preparatory to engraving, a high copperplate painting (copper, 39 x 26 cm, sale in Bayeux, 14 July 2004).
