Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn, A Standing Hurdy-Gurdy Player [Polander Standing with Arms Folded], 1631
Artist: Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn 1606-1669
Title: A Standing Hurdy-Gurdy Player [Polander Standing with Arms Folded],
Medium: Etching on laid paper
Description: *Also titled ”A Standing Hurdy-Gurdy Player” This 17th century impression, an ”extremely rare, delicate little print,” received Usticke's RRR+ rating. A very fine atmospheric impression with plate tone, this brilliant example of Rembrandt's hand-wiping of the plate is virtually impossible to find outside of a museum print room. The impression is unsigned and undated, but has been attributed to 1631. There are no watermarks and the plate is not in existence. According to New Hollstein Dutch & Flemish, this state is II of II (White and Boon's only state). In this state the uneven plate edges from the first state have been evened out and the corners have been rounded. Beyond those changes, no new work was added to the plate.
