65/5475 Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669). Clement de Jonghe, printseller. Etching, drypoint and burin, 1651, 20,7x16,1 cm., signed "Rembrandt f." and dated "1651" in the plate.

= New Hollstein 264, 7th state (of 10); Bartsch and White/ Boon 272; Nowell-Usticke B272. "The sitter was a well known publisher of prints, working in Amsterdam from about 1640 until his death in 1679. His inventory (...) contains a long list of prints by Rembrandt." (Hollstein). With the collector's mark of Max Hausdorff (Lugt 4071) and an unidentified collector's mark on verso. With a watermark showing a lion of freedom and the monogramm "BM", dating between 1660-1690. This watermark is never discovered in Rembrandts early prints, thus this print was probably made by De Jonghe himself between 1660-1679. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CIV.
