Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn (Dutch, 1606-1669)

Beggars Receiving Alms at the Door of a House, 1648, an 18th century impression (Bartsch/Hollstein, 176ii/iii). Signed and dated within the plate. Etching on laid paper, image size 6 1/2 x 5 1/16 in. (16.5 x 12.6 cm), framed.
Condition: Trimmed just within the platemark, several fox marks, pale and uneven toning, floated within the mat, not examined out of frame.

Out of the frame the sheet (same size as the image - there are no margins) is hinged down and in from the upper corners. It is gently toned, more so on the left, and fading subtly towards the right. There are 2 pale spots near the upper right corner. There are pencil annotations to the verso.
