This portrait was originally attributed to Rembrandt. It carries many of his stylistic characteristics and even displayed his signature. However, in 1950 the attribution of the painting was given to the ‘Dutch School’ and the following year the signature was proved false and removed. Ferdinand Bol originally trained in Dordrecht before moving to become the assistant of Rembrandt in Amsterdam. This work displays a number of clear influences from Rembrandt, such as the detail of the jewellery, however the portrait also seemingly lacks Rembrandt’s ability to capture the personality of the sitter.
