This standing male figure and its verso counterpart have been variously given to the Fleming Hugo van der Goes (1435/40-1482), to an anonymous Netherlandish artist, or to a Burgundian master. Actually, the idiosyncratic draftsmanship is traceable to the Middle Rhine, and the paper is of German manufacture datable to the mid-1460s.
