The attribution has been confirmed by Professor Dominique Breme, Director of the Musee National de l'Ile de France and a noted authority on the work of de Troy, who has examined the work in person. The frame, which is thought to be original, was regilt around 1880; it is signed by the gilder Poulin Villeroy Doreur along the side.
