Abraham and Isaac (B.34)

Abraham and Issac

  • Etching and burin on thick laid paper with clean, substantial margins. Signed and dated in the plate, Rembrant.1645., lower left. 
  • Biorklund Barnard's second state of two and Nowell Eusticke's third state of three with all four corners rounded and with a black spot about one inch to the left of Abraham's head.
  • According to Nowell Eusticke, a late third state impression as issued by Bernard (1845) with the entire plate rebitten and reworked and the lines are more pronounced and not as fine and delicate.
  • According to Schwartz, this is an illustration from the Old Testament, Genesis 22: 1-9.
  • It is interesting to note that Biorklund Barnard indicates that the plate was signed and dated Rembrant 1645 and Nowell Eusticke indicates that the signature and date reads Rembrandt 1645.
