A Shepherd Behind a Tree
Karel Dujardin (Dutch, 1622–1678)
Bartsch 23; Hollstein 23, apparently iii/iii, although the vertical dimension of the plate has been reduced to 13.9 cm, not the 12.7 cm described in Hollstein, so that possibly this is an intermediate state between ii/iii and iii/iii.
Sheet: 14.4 x 18.9 cm (5 11/16 x 7 7/16 in.) Platemark: 13.9 x 18.5 cm (5 1/2 x 7 5/16 in.)
