Our painting is a very nice copy of the Master's painting, passed during the sale of December 15, 2010 at Audap-Mirabaud, lot N ° 64 (link below) http://catalogue.drouot.com/pdf/AudapMirabaud/15122010 /audap-mirabaud-15dec-BD.pdf?id=8872&cp=220
The relining of the painting makes its dating difficult, it is therefore presented as early 19th century, but it can be 17th century with very slight cracks of seniority .
