[Smiling man and woman.]
Mezzotint, wove paper, with margins, very scarce; platemark 140 x 105mm (5½ x 4"). A good impression.
Engraved by Nicolaas Verkolje (1673-1746), who like his father Jan was a painter (influenced by Lairesse, van der Werff and Metsu) and printmaker. Supposedly after Frans Hals (1585 - 1666), who had died before Verkolje was born.
