Christ at Emmaus: The Larger Plate (B.87)

Christ at Emmaus

  • Etching, burin and drypoint on clean laid paper with large, clean margins. Signed in the plate, Rembrandt f.1654, lower left.
  • Biorklund Barnard's third state of three, White and Boon's third state of three, and Nowell Eusticke's third state of four, before the appearance of the short diagonal left to right scratch just below the tip of the hat and before the vertical shading on the table leg at left continued to the bottom.
  • An intermediate third state impression as issued by P.F. Basan (1785-1797) with the fine diagonal and horizontal shading added to the right hand side of the tablecloth immediately in front of the chest of the man descending the stairs, and traces of burr on the hat and curtains.
  • According to Schwartz, this is a depiction from the New Testament, Luke 24:13-31.
