Catalogue Note

This painting closely relates to an anonymous half-length portrait of the same sitter dated 1612 in the Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten Berlin-Brandenburg (inv. no. GK I 1103).1 Both the present work and its related canvas can be connected to a 1602 engraving of Albrecht Friedrich said to be after a work by Andreas Riehl the Younger.
