Information about the signature, dating, inscription or any other mark on the front or back of the art work
  • with signature lower right: Rembrandt. f:
    According to the Rembrandt Research Project, the signature is not by Rembrandt. However, Van Suchtelen points out that the paint used for the signature appears to be similar to that used for the hair, which makes it unlikely that the signature was added later (Broos e.a. 2004).
