- Curator's comments
- Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, 'Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school', 2010, attributed to Aert de Gelder, cat. no.5:
The topography has not been identified. A copy of the drawing was on the art market in 1980. See further cat. no.6 (Oo,9.93).
 Sold Amsterdam, Sotheby Mak van Waay, 17 Nov. 1980, lot 105 (recording Sumowski's attribution of the present sheet to de Gelder).
London, 1915, p.63, no.2 (van Borssom; compares B.M. drawings with related sheet of same view in Albertina, Vienna, Inv.8889, Sumowski 1087xx); Hirschmann, 1918, p.23 (not same view as Albertina drawing, pace Hind in London 1915); Lugt, 1920, p.151, n.1 (quotes London, 1915, but Albertina drawing another view, of the Ringvaart); Lugt, 1933, p.68, under no.1343 (groups with other drawings given to Borssom, reproducing two in the Louvre, nos.1343-4, pl.CVIII; inspired by late Rembrandt, e.g. Benesch 1366-7); Sumowski, 1979 etc., V, 1981, no.1090xx, repr. (attributed to de Gelder, following Rosenberg's attribution of a drawing in Berlin, Inv.2461, Sumowski 1098xx, around which a group of drawings, partly already constituted by Lugt, 1933 - as by van Borssom - is constructed); Haarlem, 1997, under no.161.
Probably a view of the same place as Hind 3.
