or studio of Rembrandt
Art historians differ in opinion about the attribution of this painting. Some, like Tümpel, think the painting was made in the studio of Rembrandt (Tümpel 1968, no. A75). Others regard the painting as an autograph work by Rembrandt (Foucart 1982, p. 92). In the exhibition catalogue of 2003 Giltaij expresses no doubts about Rembrandt's authorship of the painting, but in the catalogue of 2009 Foucart questions the attribution to Rembrandt (Giltaij 2003, no. 40; Foucart 2009, p. 216). In the latest volume of the Corpus the painting is listed as Rembrandt (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-, no. 317).
