Schöne 1938
or circle of Dieric Bouts
Friedländer 1967-1976, dl. III, p. 60, nr. 6: 'The heavy-handed style and certain uncharacteristic traits put Dieric's authorship in question. The stiff, rectilineair character of the landscape is noteworthy, not unlike the Berlin Madonna [...]. I am inclined to accept the panel.'; volgens eigenhandige notitie M.J. Friedländer op achterzijde foto in foto-archief M.J. Friedländer: 'Rotterdam / sieht im Orig.[inal] / wesentl.[ich] roher aus /[S/I]cht.[Schlecht?] nicht Orig.[inal] v.[on] Bouts'; volgens notitie in notitieboekje M.J. Friedländer 1934/1935, p. 74 (RKD, Archief M.J. Friedländer, 292): 'Bouts Folger Johannes / a.[uf] Patmos. (nicht DB.)'; zie ook cat. Rotterdam 1994
