Curator's comments
Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, 'Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school', 2010, Abraham Furnerius, cat. no.4:
A characteristic work by Furnerius which has been compared with the 'Row of Trees' in Dresden (inv. no.C1413, Sumowski 992xx), one of the drawings inscribed with the artist's name at an early date.[1]

[1] The inscription is probably eighteenth century; the comparison with the Dresden drawing was made by Sumowski, op. cit.
