This painting has always been thought to be a copy. Then in 1991 at a major Rembrandt exhibit where both paintings were shown side by side for the first time , Claus Grimm surprised the art world when he identified this painting as the original. After a comparison of the two paintings using detailed photos, slides, and a modern scientific examination, the findings confirmed his position. When studying the painting from the Hague (the copy) a preliminary sketch of the subject was found. This has never been seen on a real Rembrandt before.
