- Curator's comments
- Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, 'Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school', 2010, Anthonie van Borssom, cat. no.6:
The use of graphite in the background is unusual for van Borssom, but the drawing seems wholly autograph. The location has not been identified.
 The tentative suggestion in Exh. Paris-Haarlem, 1997-8, p.74, n.5, that it might relate to the drawing in the Pierpont Morgan Library of the 'Hunting-Lodge at Maartensdijk' (inv. 1982:73; Sumowski 307) does not convince. See further under cat. no.14 (1836,0811.66).
London, 1915, p.64, no.9; Sumowski, 1979 etc., II, 1979, no.297 (probably after 1660); Exh. Paris-Haarlem, 1997, p.74, n.5 (see n.1 above).
