- Curator's comments
- Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, 'Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school', 2010, attributed to Anthonie van Borssom, cat. no.21:
The drawing was sold in 1860 without an attribution, but given to van Borssom in 1935 (see Literature below). The lively zig-zag penwork and other aspects of the style seem unusual for him, and the drawing could be the work of another artist. For example, comparisons with Gerbrand van den Eeckhout (q.v., see cat. nos.12 and 13, 1847,0723.108 and 1836,0811.58) seem no more distant those with van Borssom. The drawing is here retained with reservations under the latter's name. The location has not been identified.
 According to a note in the file, Frits Lugt tentatively suggested that the drawing was by Jacob Esselens.
