The Hague, Oranje-Nassau tentoonstelling in de Gothische zaal, September 1923, (exhibited in the exhibition celebrating the 25th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Wilhelmina);
Utrecht, Aartsbisschoppelijke Musea, no. 230 (on loan, not mentioned in the catalogue of 1948).
The composition is directly based upon Houckgeest's famous original of 1651 now in The Mauritshuis, The Hague.1 It is one of two related versions that have previously been considered as possible autograph repetitions of the Mauritshuis picture, the other being a panel sold, London, Sotheby's, 28 March 1979, lot 75. Three further versions, considered by Liedtke to be copies, are in the Musée Reattu in Arles, the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin and a German Private collection.
On the basis of first-hand inspection, Dr. Walter Liedtke believes that this may be a second, autograph version of the picture in the Mauritshuis.
