Current attribution
follower of Rembrandt
or attributed to Rembrandt
The attribution to Rembrandt was first doubted by Bredius in a handwritten note to his publisher in 1935, but disregarded (Krempel/Neumeister 2005-, vol. 2 (2005), p. 146). It disappeared from the Rembrandt literature entirely after 1969, when Gerson labelled it a nineteenth-century imitation (Bredius/Gerson 1969, no. 115; Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 277). Currently, the Städel Museum attributes the work to an anonymous pupil of Rembrandt (Krempel/Neumeister 2005-, vol. 2 (2005), p. 148-149). Van de Wetering is of the opinion that the work is by Rembrandt, and ascribes the lesser quality to the fact that it would be a sketch or study rather than a completed painting (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 277).
