In the latest volume of the Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings it is suggested that the 'Portrait of a man in a doorway' [RKD Images no. 31463], is the companion piece of the 'Portrait of a woman probably Maria Trip' of the Rijksmuseum. This mainly because the two portraits are painted on poplar panels and are of equal size (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 184a, 184b).
Support/medium
panel (poplar), oil paint
Shape/dimensions
rectangle (portrait format) 107.5 x 82.2 cm
Given the fact that the sketch of the painting shows a larger painted surface the members of the RRP posited the idea that the painting was reduced on all sides. It is not known whether this alteration was contemporaneous or that it was a later intervention (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-, vol. 3 (1989), no. A 131).
Signature/inscription
Information about the signature, dating, inscription or any other mark on the front or back of the art work
  • with signature and date lower left: Rembrandt f / 1639
    According to the RRP the signature and date are probably copied after an original and not authentic (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-, vol. 3 (1989), no. A 131).
Current attribution
Rembrandt
in the latest volume of the Corpus a collaboration between Rembrandt and a member of his workshop is suggested (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-, vol. 6 (2015), no. 184b)
Date
