Support/medium
panel (oak)
The panel comes from the same tree as Portrait of a woman in Braunschweig [RKDImages no. 32016] (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 1 (1982), no. A 42).
Shape/dimensions
rectangle (portrait format) 83,5 x 75,6 cm
The original size of the panel has probably been reduced with c. 7 cm at the top. This must have happened after 1767 when a sales catalog still mentioned the size as c. 90 x 75 cm (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 1 (1982), no. A 42).

Rembrandt
The painting has been regarded as the original since it became known in 1911 (Bode 1912, p. 201-212). Before this moment, the copy currently in a private collection in the United Kingdom was regarded as the original (see Valentiner/Rosenberg 1909, p. 44; Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 1 (1982), no. A 42).
