Meijer vom RKD in Den Haag bestätigt in einer Korrespondenz vom Juni 2000 ausdrücklich die Urheberschaft Jan Steens an dem vorliegenden Werk.

However, after inspecting the photographies of the work, he questions the signature which in his opinion is weak and not characteristic for the artist.

Steen LEIDEN 1626 - 1679 FIGURES BEFORE AN INN, MERRY-MAKING AND PLAYING A GAME OF KOLFSPEL signed lower right: JS (in compendium) teen oil on oak panel 49.7 by 67.5 cm.; 19 5/8 by 26 1/2 in. Estimate 300,000 - 500,000 GBP Print The following condition report is provided by Sarah Walden who is an external specialist and not an employee of Sotheby's: This painting is on an oak panel with one joint at lower centre, which has been cradled long ago, possibly in the late nineteenth century. There has been one rather later crack running straight across in the sky quite near the top. Fairly old retouching remains all along the original joint while the upper crack has just a minimal narrow line of recent retouching. The panel does however appear otherwise extremely stable, with no trace of movement within the paint, past or present. There has been a little minor recent restoration over a rather older varnish. The signature on the barrel at the right base corner is slightly indistinct, with traces of far older varnish and a little old retouching nearby at the edges of the barrel, but it is nevertheless evident with careful scrutiny and magnification. Occasional old retouching can be seen but the only retouchings clearly visible under ultra violet light are minute superficial touches along the grain in the upper sky. There are some older retouches along the very top edge and a tiny sprinkling of older touches around the chimney of the cottage. The lower sky has remained immaculately pure and untouched. Occasional parts of the foliage against the sky are faintly thin but the only serious retouching in the entire painting is along the original joint. One little apparent pentiment appears to have been touched out long ago, the arm of the man reaching into the bodice of the shrinking girl on the right seems to have had his reach reduced more discreetly by some, now darkened, old retouching. Essentially however the figures, the sky in general, the landscape and cottage throughout is in beautifully intact condition, calmly unworn and undisturbed.
