The Rest on the Flight into Egypt

Anonymous French or Italian Artist, early 17th century

Etching. Size of sheet: 16.8 x 20.2 cm.

Watermark: Elongated shield, with inside a vertical element, emerging from a triple mound. See Briquet 11938, 11939.

Literature     Unrecorded.

Very fine impression with a lot of plate tone by a peintre graveur. With small margins on three sides and possibly trimmed on the right side into the plate. The style of the etching is very close in imitation and taste to that of the pen and ink drawings by Annibale Carracci, or Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi. Another possibility might be a relation to the work of Sebastian Bourdon and his circle.
