A portrait of the Dutch painter Michiel van Musscher, scholar of Adrian van Ostade. A half length portrait set in an oval. He holds in his right hand a portrait miniature of a lady.
From a collection of 324 portraits printed with the revolutionary method of Dagoty- Le Blon based on Newton's Theory of Colours, one of the first books ever printed in Italy with this technique. The copper plates are inked with blue, red and yellow giving the impression of watercolour. A monumental and beautiful work.
