Description: REMBRANDT VAN RIJN
The Rat Catcher.

Etching and drypoint, 1632. 141x127 mm; 5AF3/4>x5 1/8 inches, narrow to thread margins. Biörklund's third state (of 3); Usticke's first state (e) (of 2), with the slipped stroke through the rat catcher's shoe and shin distinct; White and Boon's third state (of 3). A superb, dark, early impression of this very scarce print, with partially inky plate edges, with the delicate tonal areas (possibly sulphur tint) and fine horizontal lines on and around the barrel undiminished, with no sign of wear, consistent with the earliest impressions of this subject. Bartsch 121; Biörklund 32-C; Hollstein (White and Boon) 121.
