Rembrandt Engraving of Christ and the Woman of Samaria Among Ruins c.1890's. By the 1800's these few surviving plates for Rembrandt's etchings were worn flat and in very poor condition. Armand Durand, a noted and much respected engraver, dedicated the major part of his life re-creating early etchings from the masters. He researched and studied those pieces available in museums and private collections, especially the etchings of the original works. Armand then duplicated the images onto new copper plates, achieving incredible clarity and accuracy. Durand's etchings have been purchased by major collectors throughout Europe, as well as the Louvre Museum in Paris. At the top, on the right side, is written Rembrandt f. 1634. It measures 4 in. 8-lOths, by 4 in. l-10th at top, and 4 in. 3-lOths at the bottom.
