Yesterday I made some pictures of the guitar painting in the Musée de la Chartreuse (FR): http://webmuseo.com/ws/musenor/app/collection/record/2251?vc=ePkH4L...$
This one can be compared to the one on my web site: http://lexeisenhardt.com/book
Both paintings are probably copies of an original by Simon Vouet. Vouet seems to have used the same models in other works as well, as can be seen in 'The Fortune Teller': https://www.gallery.ca/en/see/collections/artwork.php
The quality of the one in the museum in Douai is not very good, details are more vague and the colours are not so bright. The painting has been severely damaged and it was heavily restored in the late 20th century.
