Provenance

perhaps identical with the `Ecce Homo' in grisaille in the inventory of Rembrandt's goods made in July 1656 in connection with his bankruptcy
possibly in the inventory of Jan van de Cappelle's possessions made between January and August 1680
according to Smith it was sold with another grisaille in the Willem Six sale, Amsterdam, 12 May 1734; the only possible lot in that sale is 175 which consisted of three undescribed grisailles by Rembrandt, bought by de Barij
in the 1738 inventory of Valerius Röver, marked `bijgeleijt 1738', is: 'de capitaalste tekening die van Rembrandt bekent is, verbeeld de groote Ecce Homo, waar na hij de print heeft gesneden — met olieverwe op papier int graauw geschildert', making it unlikely (but not impossible) that it was in the Six sale
purchased by Johan Goll van Franckenstein of Amsterdam
sold by Goll van Franckenstein in 1827 to the Amsterdam dealer, A. Brondgeest
passed from Brondgeest into the possession of Thomas Emmerson, London
collection of Jeremiah Harman by 1836
J. Harman sale, London, 17-18 May 1844, lot 92, bought by John Smith
sold by Smith to G. Blamire
George Blamire sale, London, 7-9 November 1863, lot 57, bought by Mulvaney
Sir Charles Lock Eastlake (d. 1865)
National Gallery, London, bought from the executors of Lady Eastlake, 1894
