[A Turk's head.]
Etching, sheet 115 x 100 (4½ x 4"). Trimmed inside platemark; foxed; glued to backing sheet at top; on laid paper.
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 Mary issued his plates in 1767 after 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 'a Turk's head'). Unusual ink marks not found on other impressions suggest a first state.
