Mezzotint. 285 x 195mm (11¼ x 7¾"). With the collection stamps of the Kupferstich-Kabinett, Dresden. One stamp in printed area.
Portrait of Josias van de Kapelle (1632-96), a minister in Noordwijk, Den Briel and Leiden. This print was originally in the Kupferstich-Kabinett of Dresden, one of the most important print collections in the world. Established c.1560 as the private collection of the Prince-electors of Saxony, it became an independent museum in 1720. Relocated during the Second World War (thus missing the bombing of Dresden), most of the collection was looted by Soviets; although the bulk was returned in the late 1950s, over 50,000 items are still missing. However this print had already left the collection, as one of the inkstamps reads 'Duplum veräussert' (double sold); there were two sales of duplicates, 1904 and 1920.
