    Click-to-enlarge image can be found here, or at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry. It is the centered detail image of the full painting.

    A Woman Handing a Coin to a Serving Woman with a Child was sold at auction (source of the click-to-enlarge image of the full painting), for over $1.5M, and is privately owned (as far as I know).

    It is described by item 30 (though the pail is in the servant-girl’s left hand, and the mirror is reflecting the table top, not the wall painting — maybe the author meant pitcher instead of picture) in a catalog of works by eminent Dutch artists.

    The artist’s Wikipedia page (Google translated Dutch Wikipedia page has more) and collection (more under Subcategories). Influenced Vermeer.

    Sixth, of the 7 works, by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.
