Jan Uytenbogaert, The Goldweigher.

Etching and drypoint, 1639. 254x205 mm; 10x8 1/4 inches, narrow margins. Biörklund's fourth state (of 4); Usticke's second state (of 3); White and Boon's second state (of 2); New Hollstein second state (of 3), before the Captain Baillie rework. Coat-of-Arms watermark. A brilliant, richly-inked and early impression with no sign of wear and with burr on Uytenbogaert's garment and elsewhere.

Uytenbogaert (1608-1680) was likely a long-standing acquaintance of Rembrandt's. He was the Dutch national tax collector and a patron of the arts, whose country estate just outside Amsterdam was a sort of salon and focal point for local artists and poets. Bartsch 281; Biörklund 39-D; Hollstein (White and Boon) 281.
