Shape/dimensions
rectangle (portrait format) 155.3 x 122.5 cm
according to the RRP the canvas of this painting was probably originally a bit larger, at least on the right hand side (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 2 (1986), no. C 66)
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 right: Rembrant.f.16
    According to the RRP the writing and location of the signature differ from Rembrandt's general manner. The spelling of the name without the 'd' occurs in some authentic paintings between of 1633 and 1634 (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 2 (1986), no. C 65 and no. C 66). According to Van de Wetering this signature was probably copied after the one on the companion piece (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 77b).

Current attribution
attributed to Rembrandt
and studio of Rembrandt
or studio of Rembrandt
This painting was always regarded as an authentic Rembrandt until doubted by Tümpel and the RRP in 1986. They attributed this painting to Rembrandt's studio (Tümpel 1986, no. A 119; Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 2 (1986), no. C 66). In 2004 it was suggested that this painting was made by Rembrandt with the help of a pupil (Hedley/Duffy 2004, p. 349). This attribution has since then been generally accepted, although there is no consensus of opinion on the extent of the studio assistance (Brown 2006A, p. 58-60; Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 77b).
