- Curator's comments
- The traditional attribution and identification of the sitter were tentatively accepted by Michiaki Koshikawa, although he noted that there is no known engraved portrait of the writer Tabourot by de Leu and that the latter also frequently based his prints on drawings by other artists. The sitter, Étienne Tabourot (1549-1590), was a writer from Dijon known on account of his spirited, cynical style as the 'Rabelais de la Bourgogne'.
