Very good impression, printed on Italian 17th Century paper, with regular margins all around, in very fine condition.

This etching belongs to the Series listed by Bartsch ‘Les grandes têtes d’hommes coëfféeà L’Orientale’ (B. 48-52).

Castiglione’s etching technique possesses a lightness and refinement very close to Rembrandt’s examples.
