Lot Essay

The broad outlines, abbreviated faces drawn with a few quick strokes and occasional quick hatching are typical for Hoogstraten (see
W. Sumowski, Drawings of the Rembrandt School, New York, 1984, V, nos. 1132, 1137 1156 and 1202a, ill.). A drawing with the same composition is in the Albertina, Vienna (see O. Benesch, The Drawings of Rembrandt, E. Benesch, ed., London, 1973, IV, no. 750, fig. 948).

We are grateful to Peter Schatborn for his assistance in cataloguing this drawing and for confirming the attribution to Samuel van Hoogstraten from a photograph.
