      Beggar Man and a Beggar Woman Conversing.

      Etching, 1630. 78x66 mm; 3 1/8x2 5/8 inches, small margins. Usticke's second state (e) (of 3), with the horizontal scratch between the man's hand and the woman's hip. A very good, evenly-printed impression with strong contrasts.

      The two beggars represented on this plate, which is among Rembrandt's earliest etched compositions with a pair of peasant figures, bear a striking resemblance to the beggar man and woman on his early Sheet of Sutdies, etching, circa 1632. Bartsch 164; Biƶrklund 30-A; Hollstein (White and Boon) 164.
