Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Sale, Christie's, London, 8 December 1989, lot 49
    With Gallerie Caretto, Turin, 1990 from whom purchased by the present owners

    Literature
    W. Sumowski, Gemälde der Rembrandt-Schüler, Landau, 1983, vol. VI, cat. no. 2255, p. 3703, ill., p. 3840

    Although the present work was traditionally thought to be by Jan van Noordt, Sumowski endorses the attribution to Douwe based on comparison to the Portretten van twee jongens in een landschap, de een gekleed als jager, de ander als Johannes de Doper in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, signed and dated 'Douwe Aº 1647' (inv. no. SK-A-1357) (see literature). There are striking similarities in the composition and the treatment of the present work and the Rijksmuseum's double portrait.
