[Self-portrait by Thomas Worlidge] [No 33 & 434]
Etching with small margins, 200 x 160mm (8 x 6¼"). Trimmed to plate; glued to backing sheet at corners.
Posthumous impression of Worlidge's self-portrait, with the number '33' added in the top right to correspond with the numbering of the catalogue of prints which Worlidge's widow produced. Like many of Worlidge's plates this remained 'unfinished'. In later publications Worlidge's name was inscribed along the bottom of the print. The 'English Rembrandt', Worlidge (1700-66) was a pupil of Alessandro Maria Grimaldi, whose daughter Arabella he married.
O'D 4; W33; D231. BM website (incorrectly) describes this as second state, but do not take into account impressions without any numbers in the top right. See 32573. Ex: Collection of the Late Honour
