Etching on india. Plate 275 x 223mm (10¾ x 8¾").
Portrait of Jan Uytenbogaert, 'The Goldweigher', after Rembrandt's 1639 etching. Uytenbogaert sits in a fur-trimmed cloak and soft beret at a table, writing in a ledger while handing a small bag to a youth who kneels beside him. Chests and barrels in right foreground, a scale hanging from a hanging-shelf above the table which is littered with bags and coins, a picture of Moses and the brazen serpent on the wall behind and a man and woman waiting at a counter in right background. Etched by Edmund Girling, one of the 'Norwich School' of artists, of whom John Crome is most well-known.
