Etching by unknown pupil of Rembrandt. (White and Boon)
J. Six has suggested that this is a retouched plate; Münz as Bol. Modified copy of B 343. Probably by an early pupil, like Van der Pluym; compare also "Old Man on deathbed" (related to the picture in the Musée Royaux at Brussels, cf. prints not mentioned by Bartsch II El., e). (White and Boon)
