Catalogue Note

This painting is almost certainly by the same hand as a painting in the Gemäldegalerie in Kassel depicting the Apostle St. Thomas that León Krempel includes as 'Authentische' in his catalogue on Nicolaes Maes.1 Dr. Krempel has tentatively endorsed the attribution for the present work to Maes, comparing it to the Kassel St. Thomas, itself an early work by Maes dated 1656.
