[Man in hat and fur-trimmed gown]
Etching, sheet 120 x 95mm (4¾ x 3¾"). Trimmed inside platemark; glued to backing sheet;
Rembrandtesque print by Thomas Worlidge (1700-66) who specialised in etchings either copied from, or in the style of Rembrandt. Born in Peterborough, Worlidge was a pupil of Alessandro Maria Grimaldi, whose daughter Arabella he married. His widow issued his plates in 1766 and 1767 afater his death with added numbers in the top right corner to correspond with the numbers in the catalogue of his prints which she produced. This is a believed to be an early state before numbers added, as even though the print is slightly trimmed, the numbers would be visible if present.
