[Philip Herbert, 5th Earl of Pembroke] 
Etching, platemark 120 x 95mm (4¾ x 3¾"). Borders in ink around platemark
Posthumous impression of etching Thomas Worlidge's (1700-66) engraving after the portrait of the Earl of Pembroke (1619-69) by van Dyck. Herbert sat for Wiltshire in the Short Parliament, and for Glamorgan in the Long Parliament. He sided with the parliamentarians during the civil war, but made his peace with Charles II at the Restoration. Born in Peterborough, Worlidge was a pupil of Alessandro Maria Grimaldi, whose daughter Arabella he married. After his death, his widow published further impressions of his plates, adding numbers to the plates to correspond with her own catalogue numbers, as here. Like many of Worlidge's plates, it was left 'unfinished'.
