The Dordrecht dealer and collector Frans Greenwood is renowned as the inventor of stipple-engraving. He probably drew his inspiration from mezzotint engravings. Both techniques are well suited conveying ‘half tones’, or the transitions between varying grey tones. This image is based on a mezzotint by Bloteling after a painting by Jan van Mieris. Translation of inscription: Out of sight, out of mind.
