Unidentified artist's etching, "Five Lions", after Wenceslaus Hollar's etching after a study by Ruibens
Unidentified reproductive artist from the circle of Wenceslaus Hollar (aka Wenzel Hollar; Václav Hollar) (1607–1677)
“Five Lions and a Lioness”, 1646 or later, after the etching by Wenceslaus Hollar after Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640). See Hollar’s etching and description at the Metropolitan Museum of Art:
Etching on laid paper with small margins around the image borderline (and trimmed along the platemark at the top and sides), backed on a support sheet.
Size: (sheet) 15.4 x 22.5 cm; (image borderline) 14.8 x 21.3 cm
Condition: crisp and well-printed impression with replenished loss of the lower right corner and small worm holes. The sheet is clean and has been laid upon a support of archival (millennium quality) washi paper.
I am selling this superbly executed and very deceptive copy of Hollar’s etching for AU$123 (currently US$86.75/EUR76.04/GBP68.31 at the time of this listing). Postage is extra and will be the true cost based on the shipping option preferred (i.e. letter, standard or expedited).
If you are interested in purchasing this fine etching after Hollar (and after Ruben), please contact me (email@example.com) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
