Catalogue Note

Although a firm attribution to this confidently executed work has thus far eluded scholars, this painting displays similarities to works by pupils of Rembrandt, including Christoph Paudiss, Karel van der Pluijm, and Abraham van Dyck.  Notable comparisons can be drawn between the present work and Abraham van Dyck's 'Grace before dinner," An old couple seated at a Table, formerly in the collection of Emile Wolf and sold 8 June 2017, lot 19.1
