David in Prayer (B.41)

David in Prayer

  • Etching on thick wove paper with small, clean margins. Signed and dated, Rembrandt f. 1652, below the harp.
  • Biorklund Barnard's third state of three, White and Boon's third state of three, and Nowell Eusticke's second state of three with the horizontal slipt stroke across David's lower back.
  • An intermediate third state impression as issued by P.F. Basan (1785-1797) with the light spots between the posts of the bed very visible.
  • Nowell Eusticke refers to this impression as "fairly strong".
  • According to Schwartz, this is presumably a depiction from the Old Testament, Samuel 2:12.
