On the verso of this print is a stamp consisting of a red circle segmented by a series of lines. This stamp indicates that this is a reproduction by Amand-Durand (1831-1905), a Parisian printer and editor. Amand-Durand printed books of reproductions of several artists, including Rembrandt in 1883. The volume for Rembrandt included 350 plates made using heliogravure. He painstakingly recreated Rembrandt’s etchings with such high quality that several of them have entered collections mistakenly identified as Rembrandt’s originals. Heliogravure uses the photographic process on an original etching and transfers the image to a new plate. Afterwards, the process is identical to a normal etching process. Heliogravure, also sometimes known as hand photogravure, allows for precision. If it is printed on paper which appears old, it can be very difficult to distinguish from the original etching. Amand-Durand usually based his prints off of an original first or second state print in excellent condition, rather than the original plates themselves, which tended to be quite worn by his lifetime. It seems likely that Amand-Durand based this reproduction off of the first state of Rembrandt’s original, as the horse’s tail is white – a detail which appeared only in the first state of this print.
