      Man in a Broad-brimmed Hat.

      Etching, 1638. 79x65 mm; 3 1/8x2 5/8 inches, thread margins. Usticke's only state (e) withthe spots of drypoint under the left eye distinct and some of the vertical scratches in the background. Ex-collection Edward Rudge, pencil inscription verso (see Lugt 900, who notes that Rudge formed one of the preeminent collections of Rembrandt etching in England during the 19th century). A superb impression of this very scarce, early etching, with strong contrasts and no sign of wear, consistent with the earliest impressions of this subject.

      According to Usticke, "A very rare small portrait" (RRR). Bartsch 311; Biƶrklund 38-C; Hollstein (White and Boon) 311.
