Description
Trimmed inside plate mark. Print made after Capt. William Baillie's reworking of the plate, with changes to Christ's face and other details. Rembrandt's plate originally was etched about 1648. It was reworked by Baillie in 1775 and later cut into four pieces, with additional impressions taken from each. See NHD 239, III; Hind 236; Biorklund-Barnard 49-1.
