Compare the child on the right of the detail of Benesch 0480 (loose execution with flat wash) to the executioner in Benesch 0478. The treatment and structure of the figures in Benesch 0480 on the left differ from these aspects in Benesch 0479 in the centre and the expressions in Benesch 0480 seem more vacant.

Benesch 0478 Fig.e Detail of executioner

Fig.e Detail of Benesch 478,  enlarged, showing repeated attempts to define the line of the shoulder (and the left side), which is generally uncharacteristic of Rembrandt

Fig.g. Details from Benesch 0482 verso         Benesch 482 recto                    Benesch 479                                     Benesch 478                            Benesch 480

Details of the executioners: as in Fig.a, the two drawings on the right (Benesch 478 and Benesch 480) appear to be pupils' works, though retouched in a more heavily laden pen by Rembrandt, his style of his work resembling Benesch 482 recto (part of which is shown here 2nd from left)

Fig.f. On the right: detail of Benesch 478, Enlarged: these heads - especially that on the right - are of remarkable quality and resemble their counterpart in Benesch 0479 (see also Fig.b). Bol's heads are not usually of this quality, perhaps the closest being the detail on the left from Benesch 0492, which is usually attributed to him. But in Benesch 478 there is a greater delicacy and variety of touch.

Drost's handling is more mechanical, with a more metallic end-result. Benesch 481 in the centre has the greater variety and subtlety of touch seen, for example, in Benesch 885 on the right.

Fig.b. In the centre, Jonathan Richardson, senior's collector's mark (L.2184) as usually seen (from: http://www.marquesdecollections.fr/detail.cfm/marque/9071/total/1 accessed 20 September 2020) with on the left an enlarged detail of the lower left corner of Benesch 506 with, on the right, a black and white version of part of the same detail, with slightly enhanced contrasts. The ink failed to take so that the mark is mostly blind-stamped, as is the "TL" mark of Thomas Lawrence (L.2445), which is also visible. In a raking light Richardson's mark becomes clearer.
