    1841 means it was a later printing of the original. They would have had the original plate and kept making more as time goes by. Dave

    Again DizzyDave great info...I would of never known any of is it a print you say? not an etching? that part kind of confuses me....also any idea of value?
  3. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 7 years ago
    No , its a etching but done at a later date. If you look up history of Rembrandt etchings you will hear, First state, second state, so on. As time went by, the plate would loose some of its details, so someone would go back and retouch the copper plate and make another run. Van Dyke was back in the 1600's would have been first state, this was done in the 1800 by another using his old plates. Dave

    Go down to printmaking, it will explain.

    thank you Dave

    any kind of value? or is it something that an appraiser needs to look at...we are getting ready for an estate you think maybe we should take both this print and the picasso print to a reputable art gallery?...Just not sure quite what to do
  7. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 7 years ago
    First states are selling for 300.00-500.00, so I would say 100.00-150.00. Dave
