This picture is a \'free copy\' by Van Dyck of a larger picture (Vienna, Kunsthistorisches Museum) of about 1618. That painting was designed by Rubens and executed in his studio, probably by Van Dyck in his \'Rubensian\' style. NG 50, which is in a far freer style, was probably painted about 1619-20.
The second man from the right is a portrait of Nicolaes Rockox (1560-1640), the Antwerp patron who commissioned Samson and Delilah (NG 6461) from Rubens and may well have commissioned this picture too.
Probably Peter Paul Rubens sale, Antwerp, 1640; first recorded in Britain, 1764; bought with the J.J. Angerstein collection, 1824.
