    We are grateful to Fred Meijer, of the RKD, The Hague, for confirming the attribution, on the basis of photographs. This picture can be compared with two other works by the artist, of equally distilled arrangements of grapes and walnuts, similarly signed and on a comparable scale, in The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle, Durham and in the Národní Galerie v Praze, Prague.
