Catalogue Note

The present painting repeats in composition Ter Borch’s Woman Drinking, now in the Frankfurt Museum, Germany.  There has been quite some debate over the attribution of the present work (see literature); however, the evident passages of high quality suggest that the picture is indeed by a talented artist.  It has even been suggested to us that the painting may be by Caspar Netscher, who often made studied copies of the elder’s artist work.
