Joseph and Potiphar's Wife

by Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn

Type; Media:
Print; Etching
3 X 4 inches
signed in plate

Bartsch 39; Nowell-Usticke 39, state ii/V. A later second state: the black scuffing at the bottom left (foul biting), and the 4 lines extending into upper margin outside the borderline that appear on the Pierpont Morgan first state impression are no longer visible. The impression is a little less rich than the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston's second state and lacks the depth of shadows in the background and under Potiphar's wife's belly. Signed and dated in plate lower left: "Rembrandt f1634". In fine condition aside from expertly repaired tear at right edge extending just through the middle of the bedpost; with fairly even narrow (2-3 mm) margins on all four sides.
