[Head of a Turk wearing a veil]
Etching, platemark 195 x 145mm (7½ x 5¼"). Good impression; very large margins; faint crease through upper image.
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 (in which this plate was listed as 'Large Turk's head, with a veil). Lifetime impression before the number '62' was added in top right.
State i/iii; W62; D219; Ex collection of the Late Hon. C. Lennox-Boyd.
