Description
Amand-Durand was a master of what he called the heliogravure by which an image was transferred through a photomechanical means onto a specially prepared copper plate, etched in acid, and then printed on damp paper on a hand press in limited quantities just as an etching would be. It is a process that allowed for very detailed reproductions with all the gradations of tones found in the originals. He worked from actual fine quality prints of the original etchings, and his prints are often indistinguishable from the original artist etchings.

Ephraim Bonusis one of Rembrandt's most sought after etchings. This perfect facsimile copy by Amand-Durand, at a fraction of the cost of Rembrandt's original etching, holds up to close inspection of the original. The line under the print "Heliogravure and printed by A. Durand" provides the necessary identifying information. According to the Rembrandt experts, this etching was the only time that the artist made a print from one of his paintings. Bueno was a distinguished Jewish doctor who lived in Amsterdam. Rembrandt painted his portrait, which is now in the collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, between 1645 and 1647. The interesting and informative notes on the Rembrandt etching by the editor Philip Hamerton that appeared in The Portfolio along with the Amand Durand heliogravure will also be included with this purchase. Portrait of Jan Six is an interesting dark etching that relies on a window for its only light. Six is engaged in reading a publication and doesn't make eye contact with the artist, or viewer. If you look closely you can make out some of the items in the barely lit room including a nicely framed painting on the wall. Jan Six was a wealthy childhood friend of Rembrandt who continued to be a friend and patron throughout their lives. The Amand-Durand etching is faithful to Rembrandt's original etching and is the exact size.
