[Sheet of head studies]
Pub. Mar 1 1815 by E Dorrell No. 15 Upper Castle St. Leicester Sq.
Etching with very large margins, platemark 195 x 255mm (7¾ x 10").
Sheet of studies after Thomas Worlidge (1700-66), etched by Chevalier Ignace Joseph de Claussin (1766-1844), amateur etcher and collector of Rembrandt prints. This sheet was one of a set of eighteen plates published together in 1815, copied from work by Rembrandt and other artists admired by Claussin. Worlidge was often referred to as 'the English Rembrandt' because of similarities between the work of the two men.
