Physical connection
Reference in ‘composite artworks’: artworks that are/were connected, such as alterpieces, decorative pieces incorporated in panelling, and works of art that were intended to be displayed together, such as pendants and series.

pendant

In 1931 Valentiner posited the idea that this painting and the 'Portrait of a man in a broad brimmed hat' in Chiba are pendants (Valentiner 1931, no. 55, 56). To a large extent based on the difference in execution of both paintings, not all authors are certain about them being companion pieces, but most of them consider it to be a possibility (Cassill 1982, p. 258; Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 3 (1989), no. C 104, C 105). In the exhibition catalogue of 1992 and the latest volume of the Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings these paintings are regarded, without a doubt, as pendants (Tokyo 1992A, no. 7, 8; Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 133a, 133b).
Support/medium
panel (oak), oil paint
Shape/dimensions
upright oval 77,5 x 64,8 cm
The painting was possibly originally larger and rectangular (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 3 (1989), no. C 105). The painting was made into an oval in the late 17th or early 18th century (Tokyo 1992A, no. 8).
Signature/inscription
Information about the signature, dating, inscription or any other mark on the front or back of the art work
  • signed and dated center right: Rembrandt. f. / 1635
    The RRP states that both signature and date "have been gone over to a varying degree, and the authenticity of the inscription can no longer be judged" (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 3 (1989), no. C 105). In the exhibition catalogue of 1992 and the sixth volume of the Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings the authenticity of the inscription is not questioned (Tokyo 1992A, no. 8; Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 133b).
Current attribution
studio of Rembrandt
and attributed to Rembrandt
This painting was always viewed as an autograph Rembrandt, until doubted by the RRP in 1989 (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 3 (1989), no. C 105). The RRP regarded it as a work from Rembrandt's workshop. The writers of the exhibition catalogue of 1992 remained convinced of an attribution to Rembrandt. However, they considered it possible that the less important parts were done by a studio assistant (Tokyo 1992A, no. 8) In the sixth volume of the Corpus it is stated that this painting was made by Rembrandt and mainly by someone from his workshop (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 133b).
