    about Bust of an Old Man, Looking Down, Three Quarters Right
    Ex-collection Richard Dawnay, 10th Vicount Downe and Baron Dawnay of Danby.

    Wykenham Abbey. Scarborougia (British 1903-1965), a Yorkshire landowner and Rembrandt print collector of great distinction. He was collectiong between 1942 and 1963, advised by Craddock and Barnard. His last purchase was a brilliant impression of The Phoenix which is now at the Norton Simon Museum of Art, Pasadena, with his collection stamp (Lugt 719a) in black ink on the verso. In the years 1630-33 Rembrandt drew a series of red chalk drawings of imposing old men. Some of these subjects were later used in paintings of biblical subjects of meditating old men. The old man who sat for this etching is also represented in two paintings from the Rembrandt school: Reading hermit in Paris and a painting of an old man in Schwerin. This is a fine impression of Bartsch’s third and final state, Usticke’s second state of three, after the reduction of the plate removing the date but before the addition of the extra vertical shading to the shoulder.
