- Curator's comments
- Possibly a portrait of the son of the artist. Another similar inscribed "Jan Frans Cossiers 1650 Atis 16 1658", and numbered "31" in upper l, formerly in the collection of Sir J C Robinson (reproduced in Onze Kunst II (2) 161) probably represents another son.
Cossiers was an Antwerp painter, collaborator of Rubens and a pupil of Cornelis de Vos.
