Rembrandt
This painting was always regarded as an autograph Rembrandt, until doubted by Bredius in 1935 (Bredius 1935, no. 580). Bauch regarded the painting as an 18th century sketch (Bauch 1966, p. 49). Gerson followed this view (Bredius/Gerson 1969, no 580). In the collection catalogue of 1996 this painting is listed as by a follower of Rembrandt (Bock/Grosshans 1996, no. 1552).
