The Victoria and Albert Museum drawing was catalogued by Van Regteren Altena as a fully autograph work by Jacques de Gheyn II2, one of a number of drawings by the artist in which he copied details and images of earlier prints, mainly by Dürer, Cranach and Lucas van Leyden.3 In Christopher White and Jane Turner's recent catalogue of the Victoria and Albert's Dutch and Flemish Drawings, some doubts are, however, expressed as to the certainty of the attribution, and the drawing is listed as 'Attributed to Jacob de Gheyn II.'4
