[A Turk's head]
Etching, platemark 130 x 100 (45 x 4"). Good impression; faded ink stains from verso; good impression on cream 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. Lifetime impression before Worlidge's widow Mary reissued his plates in 1767 after his death with the number '63' added in the top right corner to correspond with the catalogue of Worlidge prints which she produced (in which this plate was listed as 'a Turk's head').
