While the etching itself is in very good condition, it’s important to note some imperfections in the white border area. These include a tear, some creases, and evidence of foxing. Additionally, the paper has slightly yellowed, likely due to previous framing. These aspects are typical for a piece of this age and do not detract significantly from the artwork’s overall appeal and value.

The Artist

Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt

Approximately 300 etchings and drypoints by Rembrandt were produced between 1626 and 1665. His work as a printmaker paralleled his career as a painter; he rarely dealt with the same subjects in both mediums, and he rarely made prints of his paintings. Above all, he was a brilliant experimenter and inventor in this field, frequently using standard materials in unexpected ways. His influence on printmaking is still visible in contemporary etchings.
