Etching, sheet 165 x 105mm (6½ x 4"). Trimmed to image.
Henry Blackwood (1588-1634), Scottish physician active in Paris and Rome. Engraved by Claude Mellan (1598-1688), French artist who made this print soon after moving to Rome. In Rome he found a new master in the great painter Simon Vouet. Mellan's simple, spare style makes him one of the most immediately distinctive of all major printmakers.
