VRAGEN & ANTWOORDEN EN DE NEDERLANDSCHE LEEUW

Updated: Feb 14


In 2009-10 I was asked by a curator at the Musée des beaux-arts et d'archéologie de Besançon (France) if I thought a picture in their collection (Portrait of an Unknown Man, Age 28) might be by Eworth. In exploring the question, I also worked a bit on the identity of the sitter, and De Nederlandsche Leeuw was kind enough to publish the attached request for support. While I do not believe the Besançon picture to be by Eworth, I have not yet seen it in person and make no definitive judgement here. Sadly, I had only one reply to this notice and I have not been able to provide further assistance to the museum. It is, in any case, a beautiful picture and a sitter mystery that I believe can still be solved. - HW 13Feb2021
