- Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, 'Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school', 2010, Anthonie van Borssom, cat. no.11:
It may be that the drawing, though signed, is unfinished: the uncoloured graphite indications in the background are similar to those underlying the washes of colour in other drawings by van Borssom.
