[The head of a young woman, hair tied back, looking left.] 11.
S. D Bella in et fecit.
Avec privilege du Roy [Paris, n.d., c.1641.]
Etching. 115 x 150mm (4½ x 6), with C17th watermark. One very small wormhole bottom right. Slight crease top left. Small margins.
From Stefano Della Bella's 'I Principii del Disegno', a collection of 25 etchings. De Vesme records two states, first with the imprint of Pierre Mariette, the second without, as here. However the British Museum (X,5.376) records 'A note supplied by Osbert Barnard in the 1970s states that he had never seen and could find no record of an impression of any of the states other than the frontispiece which carried Mariette's name'. Certainly this applies to all the examples held by the BM.
