J. Pierpont Morgan, New York (until d. 1913; his estate, 1913–17)
Anne Dubois de Groër. Corneille de La Haye dit Corneille de Lyon. Paris, 1996, pp. 242–43, no. 171, ill., finds certain aspects of the portrait characteristic of the works of Corneille, but observes that its poor condition and later retouching do not permit an attribution to him.

Charles Sterling and Maryan W. Ainsworth in The Robert Lehman Collection. Vol. 2, Fifteenth- to Eighteenth-Century European Paintings. New York, 1998, p. 28, erroneously as attributed to Corneille de Lyon; observe that this picture reveals the refined working technique of this group of paintings.
