Description

A young Toper and a serving Maid drinking on a Balcony bears monogram 'FH' oil on canvas 30 x 35in. (76.3 x 90.8cm.) NOTES The present lot is sold with copies of letters from Professor Seymour Slive, dated July 8, 1980 and Richard Judson, dated September 4, 1980, suggesting an attribution to Jan Bronckhorst, on the basis of photographs. Judson further adds that the painting is reduced from an original larger format and was probably part of a series for a wall decoration. For similar compositions, see B. Nicolson, Caravaggism in Europe, ed. L. Vertova, 1990, III, figs. 1379-85.
