follower of Rembrandt
This painting was accepted as a Rembrandt until 1978 (see for instance: Hofstede de Groot 1907-1928 (German edition), vol. 6 (1915), no. 39; Bolten/Bolten-Rempt 1978, no. 396). The painting has not been included among the autograph paintings by Rembrandt in more recent catalogues.
Rejected attribution
Exact or approximate dating of the described art work; the search parameters adopted for this art work in this database, are found in brackets.
c. 1651-1699 (1651 - 1700)
Although this painting bears the date 1651, Bauch believed the work to have been executed at the end of the 1650s (Bauch 1966, no. 202). The work has not been included in monographs on Rembrandt since 1978 and is thus not regarded as authentic. Consequently, the date cannot be viewed authentic either.
