- Curator's comments
- Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, 'Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school', 2010, after Anthonie van Borssom, cat. no.23:
Hitherto accepted as an original drawing by van Borssom, the penwork is uncharacteristic and the application of the watercolours dry. It is more probably a copy of a now lost watercolour.
London, 1915, p.64, no.10.
