Rembrandt van Rijn, 1606-1669
Three heads of women, one asleep
S. J. Ferris Collection
Gift of Mrs. J. L. G. Ferris, 1932
Ferris's Rembrandt etchings, like those of George Perkins Marsh, probably are
impressions made in Paris during the 18th or early 19th century. Although printed
from the original plates, these later, somewhat worn editions were less expensive and
more available to collectors than fine early impressions.
