REMBRANDT, Harmensz. van Rijn
Etching and drypoint, 26,1 x 22 cm, laid paper with watermark (Foolscap with five-point collar: WIRE project, no. I.a.c., datable ca. 1648), signed in the plate at the lower right corner "Rembrandt f. 1634" (fold running diagonally across lower half, hardly visible).
One of Rembrandt's most captivating etchings, focussing on the moment when the sheperds are called by the archangel. A very clean and well-balanced impression of the 5th state (of 6), after a reworking of the plate and strengthening of shadow lines.
Ref. New Hollstein (Rembrandt) 125.5. - Hollstein 44.3.
