I’m delighted to hear of your interest in this drawing. Firstly, its bibliographic number is 121962.

Originally the drawing was attributed to Jacob de Gheyn II but several specialists have concluded that that information is likely false. The experts did agree however that the type of clothing and interior is consistent with the Dutch or Flemish early 17th century costumes. It is a pen and ink drawing with gray washes on a cream-yellow/off-white paper and was originally attached to a secondary support of cool, mid-brown paper.
