Sheet size: 3 5/15 x 2 5/8 in. (8.5 x 6.7cm)

PROVENANCE:
Collection of Viscount Fitz-Harris, Earl of Malmesbury (per pencil-inscribed name verso, not in Lugt).
Private Collection, Maryland.
NOTE:
The subject of the present etching is Saskia Uylenburgh, daughter of a wealthy Leeuwarden burgomaster. Orphaned, she went on to live with her relative, the art dealer Hendrick Uylenburgh, who introduced her to Rembrandt-whom she married in 1634. Saskia with Pearls in Her Hair was executed during the couple's first year of marriage, hence her outfit, which may be bridal attire as she is depicted here with pearls woven into her hair and hanging from her neck and ears, along with a gown and stylish lace kerchief.
