There are several versions of this composition. The painting now in the MOA Museum in Atami [RKD Images no. 30238] was considered to be superior by the RRP in 1982; only Van de Wetering expressed his doubts about this attribution; the version in the Indianapolis Museum was catalogued as a copy by the RRP (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 1 (1982). In an exhibition catalogue of 1999 the Indianapolis painting was (re)attributed to Rembrandt (White 1999A, no. 8). After technical research of the painting in Indianapolis in 2001, the RRP also concluded that this painting has to be the protoype (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 4 (2005), p. 598-599; Dickey/Kasl/Graham 2006, p. 31).
