Catalogue Note

We are grateful to Dr Fred G. Meijer of the Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie, The Hague, for proposing the attribution to Carel Fonteyn. He notes in particular similarities between the present work and a still life by Fonteyn that is signed and dated 1665, last recorded with François Heim, Paris, in 1964.1
