Etching, 71 x 58 mm. Bartsch 358, New Hollstein 58 ii/ii.

Impression of the 2nd state (of 2) after reduction of the copperplate.

Fine impression printed on laid paper with thread margins around the platemark; the diagonal scratches on the left are clearly visible; pale foxmarks, a fragment of the upper right corner reattached, otherwise in good condition.
Provenance: Charles Delanglade (born in 1870) (Lugt 660).

Very rare print (Usticke RR+). Only two impressions of the 1st state before reduction of the copperplate on the right are known (Rijksmuseum, British Museum). In some impressions of the 2nd state the lower part left blank by Rembrandt has been trimmed.
