Curator's comments
Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, 'Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school', 2010, Lambert Doomer, cat. no.12:
The style seems close to the drawings that Doomer made on his Rhine journey of 1663, but the location has not been identified.[1]

NOTES:
[1] Hind (in London, 1917) associated the style with cat. no.6 (1886,1012.539), and was followed by Sumowski (1979; see Lit. below).
