Rembrandt van Rijn, 1606-1669
The mother of Rembrandt with oriental head covering, cat. no. NH 86. Etching - first edition of 2
This copy of 1792 by F. Novelli, 1767-1836. Size image to the contour line 13.2 x 12.8 cm, the entire etching including caption to the press edge is 16.8 x 14 cm, the paper 22 x 19.5 cm. In the etching at the bottom left "Rembrandt F" and bottom right "Franc. Novelli inci. 1792”. The caption "La mère de Rembrandt" was added by Novelli. Outside the image there are a few small rust spots, two of which are in the margin of the etching. On the back top middle little residue from tape. Watermark with different letters not known to me.
The very good copies of Novelli are always signed and accurately dated at or around 1792 and all recorded and described at Rembrandt's etching in the Nieuwe Hollstein, including the various conditions. Most other copies are of unclear origin and are often not mentioned in studies and catalogues of Rembrandt etchings.
To achieve the most accurate result, Novelli etched his copies almost always 1 to 1, sometimes slightly smaller, after an original etching by Rembrandt, so he obtained very faithful copies in mirror image with optimal results and effect.
