Item Overview


The Deposition dated '1635.F' (lower left) oil on panel 361/4 x 271/4 in. (92 x 69.3 cm.) PROVENANCE with Goudstikker, Amsterdam, by 1924. with P. de Boer, Amsterdam, 1929. LITERATURE A.J. Adams, The Paintings of Thomas de Keyser (1596/7-1667): A Study in Portraiture in Seventeenth Century Amsterdam, Diss., Cambridge (Mass.), 1985, I/II, pp. 397-8 and 401; III, pp. 117-8, no. 62. Idem, in J. Turner, ed., The Dictionary of Art, London, 1996, 18, p. 11. NOTES This picture is one of a pair with a Resurrection, signed and dated 1635 (Anon. Sale, Lempertz, Cologne, 14 June 1941, lot 47). In all likelihood, the two pictures were either a pair or a part of a series - it is possible that a Golgotha (Pushkin Museum, Moscow) dated 1637 is part of the same group. Ann Jensen Adams (1985, loc. cit. ), records three copies of the present picture: that with Vlaicu Ionescu, Middletown, New Jersey, 1982, on panel (the provenance of which has in the past been confused with that of the present picture); that sold, New York, American Art Association, 4 May 1916, lot 62, as 'Attributed to Rembrandt', on panel; and that in the collection of G”ttingen University, 1926, no. 98, on canvas.
