- Curator's comments
- The plate was used as illustration to Jean d'Ennetières's "Le Chevalier Sans Reproche" (Tournay, 1633).
The print was previously attributed to Wenceslaus Hollar, but the attribution was rejected by Pennington and New Hollstein.
Recorded in Hymans's "Lucas Vorsterman, catalogue raisonné de son oeuvre" (Brussels, 1893), p.211, cat. No.11, as a portrait of Jacques Lalaing; the attribution to Vorsterman is unsupported by evidence.
Firmin-Didot records the plate as an anonymous portrait of Jacques Lalaing engraved in the manner of Bernard Picart
