[Portrait of a Man.]
Etching on thin laid paper, 115 x 90mm. 4½ x 3½". Some creasing.
Original etching by John Chalon (1738 - 1795). Born in Amsterdam, Chalon came to work in London to take advantage of the strong market in prints in England at the time. He is best known for his copies of Rembrandt's etched works. In 1802, after the artist's death, C. Josi published 'The Compleat Work of Etchings By John Chalon'. Limited to an edition of 50, it contains 100 of his plates, including this one.
