Rembrandt van Rijn (Dutch, 1606-1669) etching and drypoint depicting a bust-length portrait of an unidentified man with a bushy beard and distinctive hat. With the slipt stroke from cap to left cheek. Signed and dated "Rembrandt f[ecit] 1640" in plate, upper left, with partial Arms of Amsterdam watermark. Inscribed "A" in brown ink to verso, likely an unidentified collector's mark. New Hollstein's first state of two; Usticke’s second state of three. Plate: 5 15/16" H x 5 7/16" W. Sheet: 6" H x 5 5/8" W. Ref: Bartsch, Hollstein (White and Boon) 265; Hind 170; New Hollstein 182.
