We are grateful to Fred Meijer of the RKD, The Hague, for confirming the attribution after inspection of the original. Like Dr. Walther Bernt (certificate dated 1964), Meijer considers this a late work datable to the 1670s.
No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 15% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.
