Delacroix’s interest in the costume and visual features of earlier periods can be seen in this etching of a standing nobleman holding the reins of a horse. Earlier states of this plate show only the central figure; the other figures and horse behind him were added in subsequent states.Primary Object Classification Print Primary Object Typeintaglio printCollection AreaWesternRights
