The watermark is “Strassbourg coat of arms” with the monogram of the Swiss paper manufacturer Nicolaus Heusler. This kind of paper was imported a lot into the Netherlands before 1648.Another composition like this exists, but without the entourage and without the multitude of unclear, superfluous scribbles, which is considered a genuine Rembrandt.
