Peter ILSTED - Vilhelm Hammershøj - mezzotint

Mezzotint by Ilsted after the selfportrait by Hammerhøj in the Uffici Galleries in Florence. In his late years Ilsted executed a series of mezzotints interpreting the portraits painted by other artists. Most of them were never commercialized and this one is no exception, as it is extremely rare. The final state bears the name of the sitter - Vilhelm Hammershøj (Ilsted's brother in law) - but this copy is without any text and by the artist inscribed in pencil "4de Pr 28 April). Unfortunately he did not give the year which would have solved the uncertainty about when it was executed - guesses go from 1920-1928. May be a unique copy of the 4th state before the lettering of the final state
