      CORNELIS VISSCHER
      The Large Cat.

      Etching and engraving, circa 1657. 145x188 mm; 5 3/4x7 3/8 inches, narrow margins. Second state (of 2). A superb, dark and well-inked impression with strong contrasts and no sign of wear.

      Widely-collected for his detailed engraved portraits of prominent figures of his day, Visscher's (1629-1658) skill as a printmaker is evident in this image which captures the essence of a resting cat, its slumber not distracted by the cunning mouse in the background. Hollstein 42.
