Included in Haden's "Etudes a l'eau-forte" (1866), this is one of his few portrait etchings. Based on a painting by Joseph Wright of Derby entitled "Edwin the Minstrel," the sitter, Thomas Haden of Derby, was the artist's grandfather. Haden may have based his etching on a mezzotint reproduction of the painting.
An excellent impression with the burr printing strongly.
