Tobias and the Angel, 1613

Engraving after Adam Elsheimer (Frankfurt-am-Main 1578 – 1610 Rome)
249 x 255 mm; 9 13/16 x 10 1/16 inches

References:
Bartsch, Dutuit and Hollstein 2

Notes:
A fine, black, rich impression.

Goudt engraved this work after the painting of the same subject by Elsheimer in the National Gallery in London. Hercules Seghers (c. 1589 – c. 1638) borrowed the two figures from this plate for his well-known etching which plate was later re-worked and altered by Rembrandt into his Flight into Egypt. On this, see illustrations nos. 440, 441 and 442 and accompanying text in A. Hyatt Mayor Prints and People (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 1971). Mayor notes that in this engraving, Goudt accomplished the “longest black to white scale then known…His prints after Elsheimer started printmakers on a technical search that led to the invention of mezzotint and also to Rembrandt’s dark masterpieces”.
