Rejected attribution
Rembrandt
possibly Gerbrand van den Eeckhout
attributed to Govert Flinck
In 1960 MacLaren rejected the traditional attribution to Rembrandt. He characterized the painting as clearly by a pupil or follower with a slight resemblance to the earliest work by Gerbrand van den Eeckhout (MacLaren 1960). This suggestion has been rejected by Sumowski (Sumowski 1983-1994). Bauch suggested an attribution to Govert Flinck (Bauch 1966), which was supported by Sumowski ((Sumowski 1983-1994). Both attributions have justfiably been rejected (Bomford 2006).
