[Oriental figure behind bannister]
Etching with large margins, platemark 170 x 130mm (6¾ x 5"). Early state (cloak unfinished). Glued to backing sheet in corners; excellent condition.
Rembrandtesque print by Thomas Worlidge (1700-66) who specialised in etchings either copied from, or in the style of Rembrandt. The headgear worn by the figure here is adapted from Rembrandt's 'Second Oriental Head' (itself based loosely on a print by Lievens).
