About this artwork

Claude Vignon is one of the most interesting members of a community of 17th-century French artists who traveled to Rome and became attached to the Caravaggesque painter Simon Vouet. In 1619 he produced this etching, his first known original composition, which is thought to have been inspirational to Rembrandt. It is one of only 27 etchings produced by the artist throughout his life.
