Beautiful print, with monogram “RHL f.” on bottom right, by an anonymous etcher from the 19th century, on watermarked laid paper, with small margins over the framing rabbet, in excellent condition (see the pictures).
From the Ovid’s Metamorphoses, we know that Diana, goddess of the hunt, was spied by Actaeon while bathing and she, as a punishment, turned him into a deer. The moment here represented seems to be the one in which Diana, taken by surprise, turns to face the intruder.
The original dates back to 1631, at a time when Rembrandt was about to leave Leiden for Amsterdam and belongs to his first group of etchings of nudes, perhaps conceived as a counterpart to the "naked woman sitting on a mound", which has the same dimensions and with a similar pose. The representations of the female nude are rare in the Dutch art of this period and Rembrandt's approach to his subject is characteristic of his art, especially of his early years. The attention to detail, the chiaroscuro and the sense of a dramatic storytelling make it one of the most important in the first phase of the artist.
