This exceptionally well-preserved drawing is close in size (24.1 x 37.3 cm) and composition to a drawing by Henstenburgh in the Teylers Museum, Haarlem (inv. U4; A.M. Zaal, Herman Henstenburgh (1667-1726). Hoorns schilder en pasteibakker, exhib. cat., 1991, Hoorn, Westfries Museum, p. 5, fig. 4). Furthermore, the central part of the composition is particularly close to that in an upright drawing previously in the Van Pallandt collection.
