After Hendrick Gerritsz Pot
oil on linen
unsigned, title and artist attribution and provenance later handwritten on stretcher, additional label with monogram "H. D. Lyman".
14-1/4" x 13-1/8", framed 18-3/4" x 17-1/2"
Provenance: Dr. George Hinckley Lyman (1819-1891), Boston, Massachusetts, purchased in Florence, Italy, April, 1891; His second wife Henrietta Dana Lyman (Monod) (1840-1920), thence by descent; Private collection.
Notes: The original painting, conserved in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence, was formerly attributed to Horatius Paulijn (Dutch, 1644-1682/85), because of the H. P. monogram. In the early 20th century, after Dr. Lyman's death, the Uffizi changed the attribution; the provenance on the back of this painting corresponds with the information the Lymans had at the time of their purchase in 891. This painting, of almost identical dimensions, is probably a late 18th-century copy.
