Bartsch 074
Second State
Etching, engraving, and drypoint;

The state of conservation is very good, as shown in the attached photo images.

Wieseman describes the etching as a "technical tour de force, incorporating an enormous diversity of printmaking styles and techniques":
The group of figures at the left side of the print, for example, is deftly indicated with a minimum of lightly bitten lines; in contrast, the evocative richness of the blacks and the depth of tone in the right half of the print represents Rembrandt's experimental competition with the newly discovered mezzotint technique.

Etching with drypoint and engraving, 1649ca., an impression of New Hollstein's second state (of four), printing before Captain Baillie's rework, on paper watermarks.

In the "Le Peintre gravure" of Adam Bartsch:
There are five different proofs of this piece.
First state.
there is a sort of vault in the back, above the head of Jesus Christ.
Second state.
The bottom is retouched, so that we no longer see this vault.
Third state.
Entirely retouched by Captain Baillie.

Rembrandt worked on the Hundred Guilder Print in stages throughout the 1640s, and it was the critical work in the middle of his career, from which his final etching style began to emerge.
He probably completed it in 1649.
Although the print only survives in two states, the first very rare, evidence of much reworking can be seen underneath the final print and many drawings survive for elements of it.

The laid paper has watermarks:
on the one hand, on the left, a partial image of a lily in a shield crowned with letters at the bottom;
in the left part, partial written in block letters.
Images of printing parts are printed with backlit watermarks, and similar images of equivalent watermarks on prints of the three trees and three crosses are also published.
The lily in the crowned shield can be assimilated to the Strasburg Lily watermarks or Van Gelder Zonen even for the inscription in block letters.

Provenance:
private collection, France
