description:

The envelope and vintage print of this image have written on them "The grandson of the model for "The Witch" looking at her picture". This particular painting is no longer thought to have been executed by Frans Hals himself, but rather one of his pupils. The real "Malle Babbe" painting is located at the Gemaldegalerie in Berlin, Germany. This painting is also known as: "Malle Babbe van Haerlem", "The Witch", "The Witch of Haarlem", and "Hille Bobbe".
