    Work is similar to the bust of a young girl in the Louvre, Paris, attributed to Claude Arnoux, called Lulier (active 1545-1578).
    In a letter dated 14 June 2008, Hanne Honnens de Lichtenberg confirmed that the bust could be by Johann Gregor van der Schardt (?1530/31-after 1581), as was first suggested by Jörg Rasmussen in 1975.
