Title: Jews in the Synagogue
Date: 1648
Medium: Etching with drypoint on paper
Signature: Signed and dated on the left wall "Rembrandt.ƒ. | 1648"
Description: According to New Hollstein Dutch, this etching is the V state of IX. This 17th century posthumous impression has been completely re-etched, i.e. shadows behind and between the two figures in the left foreground redrawn with heavy shading and cross-hatching, many shadows on their cloaks strengthened or re-bitten. The same applies to the two standing figures to the far right. The wall behind them re-hatched with strong vertical lines ending just under the windows. Some sections of the far part of the wall to the left of this passage re-hatched with heavy lines over the full height of the wall. Some of the contours and shadows of the figures in the background strengthened, for example the standing figure seen from behind and the two figures standing on both sides of him.
