Current attribution
This painting was always regarded as an autograph Rembrandt until doubted by Gerson in 1968 (Gerson 1968, no. 94). Van Gelder proposed that the painting was the result of a collaboration between Rembrandt and Ferdinand Bol, an attribution that was followed by Sumowski (Van Gelder 1953, p. 296; Sumowski 1957-1958, p. 224). However, most art historians remained convinced of an attribution to Rembrandt (see for instance: Bauch 1966, no. 259; Tümpel 1986, no. 106; Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings, vol. 3 (1989), no. A 114). The Leiden Collection fully attributes this painting to Rembrandt (online collection catalogue, accessed 2018-04-20).
