Note that the work cited is only a possible match with the seventeenth-century record

Usually believed to be the work in Vienna but see also the copy in the Royal Collection RCIN 402681. The absence of the CR brand from both is more easily explained in the case of the Viennese panel, which has been planed and cradled, but the question remains open. It is worth comparing against Charles I's miniature painter Peter Oliver's copy in the V&A no. 1787-1869 (van der Doort's inventory WS 120, № 69). Oliver's arrangement of Lucretia's hair might in fact have more in common with the Royal Collection version
