Original etching with touches of burin printed in black ink on laid paper bearing a Strasbourg Lily watermark (Ash/Fletcher 26; Hinterding A-BA-b-b)

Signed and dated in the plate upper left Rembrandt f. / 1634. 

A strong, dark and richly printed 17th century/lifetime impression of Bartsch and New Hollstein’s second and final state, Usticke’s first state of two, of this rare self-portrait (characterized by G.W. Nowell-Usticke in his 1967 catalogue Rembrandt’s Etchings: States and Values as “a scarce, attractive plate, fine impressions scarce,” and assigned his scarcity rating of “R+” [75-125 impressions extant in that year]), printed after the borderlines at the left and right were moved in and the width of the plate was reduced (the left border line moved to run through the “R” of the signature). 

Catalog: Bartsch 18 ii/ii; Hind 109; Biorklund-Barnard 34-A; Usticke 18 i/ii; New Hollstein 134 ii/ii.

In excellent condition, trimmed just outside the borderline all around.
