Cornelis Visscher
1628 – Haarlem – 1658

Susanna and the Elders.

Etching and copper engraving, after Guido Reni, on handmade paper with watermark: crowned shield with lily (similar Heawood 1788). 32,1:38,1 cm.

Strong impression, full of contrast, with the address of the publisher F. de Wit and with full margins. Two tiny wormholes within the image, several small tears and two tiny losses of paper at lower margin. Neatly smoothed centrefold, paper somewhat yellowed.

Literature: Smith, Dutuit and Hollstein 31, V.

The masterly engraved and etched print can be roughly classified thanks to an inventory made by the Amsterdam art dealer Clemens de Jonghe on February 11th, 1679. This print obviously was not made after the painting by Guido Reni which is owned by the National Gallery in London today, proved by the significant differences between this painting and our print, but after another till unknown painting by G. Reni.
