JACQUES CALLOT
La Tentation de Saint-Antoine.

Etching, 1635. 352x462 mm; 13 7/8x18 1/4 inches. Fourth state (of 5). With an added decorative engraved frame by another hand on the border of Callot's etching. A very good, dark and evenly-printed impression of this important etching with strong contrasts.

This is among Callot's (1592-1635) most ambitious and celebrated etchings. He created more than 1,400 etchings and returned to this cataclysmic subject, which he had first treated in 1617, again just before his death. Lieure 1416.
