- Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, ‘Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school’, 2010, Anthonie van Borssom, cat. no.1:
The old attribution to van Borssom on the verso is convincing, although the recto figure study is an unusual motif for the artist. The locality depicted on the verso is uncertain.
London, 1915, p.62, no.1, repr. pl.XXXI (van Borssom); Gerson, 1935, p.58; Sumowski, II, 1979, no.329, the recto repr. and V, 1981, p.2426, under no.1090xx (the inscription a signature; compares verso with landscapes in Berlin, nos. 537, 538 and 5371, respectively Sumowski 347, 318 and 348; the recto figure compared with those in the second of these); Vermet, 1982, p.411 (compares figure in Fitzwilliam Museum drawing, PD3133 as Saenredam, and those in cat. nos.17 and 18 of church interiors).
