Professor Katlijne van der Stighelen has accepted the painting, on first hand inspection, as a fully autographed portrait by Cornelis de Vos.

We are grateful to Professor Jorgen Wadum for assistance in dating and identifying the panel maker's mark to that of Guilliam Gabron along with the Antwerp Guild mark. The combination of the two dates the panel between 1626 and 1638.
