Right, the painting is by Jan Joest, in the Nicolai Church Kalkar.
Btw, could you please post the link to this high-rez image? I could not find it on the web. Thanks!
A very similar Nuremberg barrel, also in excavated condition, of characteristic length and the breech struck with a Gothic minuscule mark s, is included in an upcoming sale. I will post details here as soon as the auction is done.
