[Portrait of Sofonisba Anguissola at the Easel]
[Thomas Worlidge after Sofonisba Anguissola]
Etching, platmark 190 x 155mm (7½ x 6"). Large margins; good impression
Etching of Sofonisba Anguissola's famous 1556 self-portrait (Lancut Palace, Poland), although ms on this print suggests it was believed to be the wife of the artist printmaker Thomas Worlidge. Mary Worlidge (1767) titles the print 'a lady painting' while Dack (1907) also suggests it is Worlidge's wife, indicating the scarcity of knowledge of Anguissola's painting. Worlidge (1700-66), was pupil of Alessandro Maria Grimaldi, whose daughter Arabella he married. After his death, his widow Mary published further impressions of his plates, adding numbers to the plates to correspond with her own catalogue numbers (as here).
