Curator's comments
Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, 'Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school', 2010, Pieter de With or (more probably) Gerrit van Battem, cat. no.9:
As stated under Royalton-Kisch 2009 no.6 (1895,0915.1032), the drawing belongs to a group of works for which, while the current attribution to Pieter de With has much to commend it, the traditional attribution to Gerrit van Battem is probably to be preferred, on the basis of a comparison with the signed drawing by him in Edinburgh. The location has not been identified.

Literature: Popham, 1935, p.175, no.2 (as van Battem); Van Gelder and Jost, 1967-8, p.38, repr. p.40, fig.14 (Van Battem); Sumowski, 1979 etc., X, 1992, pp.5516-7, no.2437X, repr. (De With).
