Lot Essay

It appears that New Hollstein's second and third states are indeed identical and that the inscription underneath the window and the barely legible one in the densely worked area at lower right were in fact engraved at the same time. What we do know with certainty is that François Lutma's address at lower right had been added in Rembrandt's lifetime, since he outlived François by five years.
