Inscriptions
Inscription Content: Inscribed in pen and brown ink, lower right, a small, indecipherable number or paraphe; verso, upper right, in graphite: ‘2/c’; centre: ‘62’; lower right: ‘From a drawing of Hollar in the collec [cut away]’. The latter inscription must have been trimmed since Hind inspected the drawing for his catalogue (London, 1915 - see Lit. under Comment), recording the inscription as reading ‘From a drawing of Hollar in the collection at Windsor’. As he noted, no such drawing is known in the Royal Library.

Falsely stamped 1868-8-8-7560.


Dimensions
Height: 82 millimetres (oriental paper - has no chain lines)
Width: 195 millimetres


Condition
Generally good; a near-vertical crease at top (left of centre) and surface dirt at upper and lower right.

Curator's comments
For the etching by Koninck see also F,5.172.

Erroneously stamped on verso as 1868,0808.7560 (the no.given in Hind).

Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, 'Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school', 2010, after Philips Koninck, cat. no.20:
Like cat. no.19 (F,5.173) this appears to be an eighteenth-century copy after Koninck's etching (Hollstein 4).
LITERATURE :
London, 1915, no.176 (copy after anonymous etching; see also note under Inscription).
