Peter and John Healing the Cripple

  • Etching, drypoint and burin on thin laid paper with substantial, clean margins. Signed and dated in the plate, Rembrandt f. 1659, bottom center. Minor paper loss in the right lower margin only. Grapes with Thick Stem watermark (Ash and Fletcher 21 E.a., pg. 124).
  • Biorklund Barnard's fourth state of four, White and Boon's fourth state of four, and Nowell Eusticke's fifth state of six, after the V shaped scratch on the second tree to the right of the building is burnished out and the sky is burnished clean.
  • According to Nowell Eusticke, an early fifth state impression as issued by Jean (1810) after the reworking of the plate with fine close shading on the hats of the two men to the far left, the dark space just above and to the left of the head of the seated beggar, and the lightly shaded spot in the crowd, lower right, is covered with cross-hatching.
  • Nowell Eusticke refers to this impression as "strong and clear".
  • According to Schwartz, this is a depiction from the New Testament, Acts 3:1-8.
