Jan Van den Wouver (Waverius) (1574-1636)


Etching by Anthony Van Dyck and Lucas Vorsterman and engraving by Paulus Pontius, eighth state (of nine)

This is an impression with the lettering added to the margin. Here the sitter's age, given as 58, is engraved onto the wall behind.

This print is from an album entitled "Van Dyck Etchings and their states, by an Amateur". A note in the beginning of the album explains that it is a unique, deluxe edition of photogravures of Van Dyck's etchings, being the only one printed on drawing paper and furnished with twenty-seven impressions of the etchings and 'doubtful' attributions.
