  • other state of this print

    Three earlier states of the print are known. The first state does not have the inscription yet (Charington 1923, no. 110 I). The second has the artist's names in scratched lettering (Fitzwilliam Museum, inv. no. P.5923-R). The third state is inscribed with 'Rembrandt pixit' and 'J. McArdell fecit', but misses the inscription about the collection of John Blackwood (British Museum, inv. no. 1919,0616.133).
