Noblemen from Different Countries, Willem Pietersz. Buytewech, 1615

etching, h 194mm × w 73mm More details

Both noblemen are fashionably attired in wide, puffy breeches with ribbon garters. The young man holding a plumed hat bears the inscription Frans Edel Man (French nobleman). This, however, was a later addition by the print’s publisher. A French nobleman evidently sold better than an anonymous youth.
