More information

Initially, this painting was attributed to Rembrandt, but in 1988, even before an investigation by the Rembrandt Research project, it was re-attributed to the School of Rembrandt. This was based on stylistic reasons. The group of paintings reflecting Rembrandt's late style is extensive. It was possibly painted by Aert de Gelder, one of the last pupils of Rembrandt, who continued to paint in the free late style of his master, even though such paintings were no longer in fashion. There are, however, still art historians who attribute it to Rembrandt himself.
