An old man asleep by the fire, perhaps typifying Sloth
A reasonably well preserved and convincing work, which is reliably signed and dated 1629 and in various respects akin to other works datable in that year. It is moreover almost certainly identical with one of the paintings described as the work of Rembrandt in the will of Jacques de Gheyn III in 1641.
