    Govaert Flinck was a pupil of Rembrandt's from 1632- 1635, following the master's move to Amsterdam in 1631. During this period he worked closely with Rembrandt and successfully mastered his early Baroque style.
    The present lot is similar in subject matter, composition and technique to a work of Rembrandt's dated 1635 in The Hermitage, St. Petersburg. Another version of the same subject in the Alte Pinakothek, Munich has been attributed to Govaert Flinck.

    The present painting is accompanied by letters from Dr. Werner Sumowski, 23 July 1971, dating the work to the 1630s and from J.W. von Moltke confirming the attribution to Flinck (dated 13 April 1976).
