  • inspired by
    Anoniem, Halffiguur van een jonge vrouw in fantasiekostuum
    'Saskia'-voorstellingen van Rembrandt en de Rembrandt-school. De voorstelling komt zeer dicht bij het schilderij dat wellicht in de omgeving van Rembrandt is ontstaan en dat door Grimou in Parijs is gekopieerd (zie L. Dimier, Les peintres Français du XVIIIe siècle : histoire des vies et catalogue des oeuvres (2dln.), Parijs/Brussel 1928-1930, dl. 2, p. 213, nr. 94; een afbeelding van deze kopie is tot nu toe niet gevonden).
