Etching, sheet 200 x 150mm (7¾ x 5¾"). Very large margins; uncut, good impression.
Male bust by Thomas Worlidge (1700-66), 'the English Rembrandt' and a pupil of Alessandro Maria Grimaldi, whose daughter Arabella he married. In Mary Worlidge's posthumous sale of Worlidge's prints (from which time this impression dates) this plate was listed as 'Rocius' (possibly a mispelling of 'Roscius', the ancient Roman actor often referenced in Georgian Britain).
