  Etching with mezzotint.

Unique early proof of this unrecorded etching with mezzotint. Inscribed by Delamotte in the plate “Rembrandt 1635”. We have been unable to trace any other impression of this print.

William Delamotte’s unusual method of combining the most delicate mezzotint ground with strong etching is displayed beautifully in this superb early proof impression.

Provenance: Delamotte family collection.

On cream wove paper full margins. Very fine original condition.
