Description: JACQUES CALLOT
Portrait de Claude de Deruet.

Etching, 1632. 296x173 mm; 11 3/4x6 3/4 inches, narrow margins. Second state (of 5), before the address lower right. A brilliant, richly-inked, early impression of this exceedingly scarce etching.

We have found only one other such early impression at auction in the past 30 years.

Claude de Deruet (1588-1660) was a famous French Baroque painter of the 17th century and, like Callot, who paid hommage to him in this portrait, also a native of Nancy. Deruet worked in Rome from around 1612 to 1619, during which time Claude Gellée, Le Lorrain, apprenticed with him for a year. Deruet's son, Henri-Nicolas, is shown at his side. Lieure 1296.
