A rare and famous print by this great portrait artist. Researching this work briefly, I discovered versions of it on the websites of the Rijksmuseum, the British Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.

The NGA contrasts it with the much less impressive final version, engraved by Jacob Neeffs.
