Other Images:

Etching, 1642, 98 x 92 mm., Parthey 1933, Pennington 1933 only state. Fine, dark impression on laid paper with good margins outside the rectangular plate mark; slight traces of old fold marks. Hollar was probably the first truly international etcher, wending his way from his birthplace in Bohemia through most of Europe (including Gibralter), noting down, in drawings and prints, varieties of landscape, of dress, of architecture and of customs, as well as reproducing rare and valuable works of art he saw on his journeys. The woman -- and the fashion -- pictured here are certainly English and the work may actually be a portrait, taken from an ivory miniature.

Provenance:
John Charrington (Lugt 572). Charrington (1856-1939) was the print curator of the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge and the author of the catalog of its collection, as well as of other print studies. A collector himself, he gave most of his personal collection to the Fitzwilliam, including 5-6000 portrait engravings, works by Schongauer and Mantegna, and early proof impressions of the David Lucas mezzotints after Constable. The remainder of his collection, presumably prints the Fitzwilliam already had, was sold at auction in 1911 and, after his death, in 1940.
