About the Item: Medium: etching and drypoint. This is Seymour Haden's etched version of the painting by Thomas Wright of Derby entitled "Edwin the Minstrel". The man in the portrait was actually Sir Francis Seymour Haden's own grandfather. This is a very rare first state impression circa 1864 -- before the artist added additional crosshatched drypoint shading at the back of the figure. An additional plate signature would also be added for the second state. There were five different states in all. Catalogue references: Drake 51 and Schneiderman 53. This impression is signed both in pencil and in the plate. Printed on watermarked laid paper, the plate measures 14 x 9 1/2 inches (355 x 242mm). The total sheet measures 17 x 12 1/8 inches (434 x 308mm).

Condition: the paper is age-toned and light struck.
