Catalogue Note

At the time of the publication of her monograph on Amberger in 2004 (see Literature), Annette Kranz knew this portrait only from a very old  black and white photograph.  Based on her recent examination of a high resolution digital image, she now accepts this portrait as a work by Christoph Amberger.

Dr. Kurt Löcher, who has seen this painting firsthand, also confirmed the attribution and suggested a date of circa 1533.
