Lot Essay

The attribution to Berckheyde was kindly suggested by Peter Schatborn. Mr Schatborn notes that although the figure does not relate directly to a known painting by Berckheyde, a girl standing by a barrel in a very similar pose is found in the foreground of a signed painting by the artist sold at Frederik Müller, Amsterdam, in 1953.
