Pieter Brueghel the Younger (c.1564/5-1636)


Etching by Anthony Van Dyck, fifth state (of six)

Absolutely no changes have been made to Van Dyck's portrait since the first state. The only changes to the plate are the additions of a borderline, signature line and title.

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.
