- Curator's comments
- The attribution to Decourt was suggested by Alexandra Zvereva after examination of the original. The yellow-green wash in the background is uncharacteristic for works of this period and has probably been added by a later hand.
For another work by the same artist, with the same background wash, see Gg,1.422.
