Katalognotizen

Despite its evident high quality, this small portrait has defied satisfactory attribution.  When sold in 1935 it was given - upon the suggestion of Max J. Friedländer - to the Meister der Statthalterin Maria von Ungarn (described as Netherlandish, circa 1500), and named such because it was believed the anonymous artist was a court Painter to the Regentess Maria of Hungary. This hand was later linked with the English painter  William Scrots, to whom it was attributed in 1980.  It does not however appear to be by Scrots nor apparently English, and it is most likely South Netherlandish, probably painted in Antwerp or Brussels, although it is possible that it is Westphalian. On grounds of costume as well as style, it can however be dated with greater confidence to the late 1520s or 1530s.
