Description

Jan Lutma
etching (re-strike)
6 3/4 x 8 3/4 in
This third state of Rembrandts etched portrait of the Amsterdam silversmith, Jan Lutma, is a restrike, executed in the late nineteenth century from a plate in the possession of Parisian publisher Henri-Louis Basan. After Rembrandts death, the third and final state of the etching was heavily re-worked by the Polish etcher Michael Plonski, who later sold it to Basan. As you look at Lutmas portrait, observe Plonskis later changes: hatching has been added to repair the drypoint and to enhance the appearance of texture where the plate had worn down.
