Original 1883 antique engraving (Edmond Ramus) of the "Four Negro Heads" by Flemish painter, Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640). Handmade laid paper, watermarked -- Arches. This folio etching with crisp lines and strong plate impression was produced by J. Rouam and Remington and Co. in Paris and London, jointly. Unlike most antique prints of this vintage, the Rouam and Remington etchings were produced in extremely low numbers and are incredibly hard to find, especially in such pristine condition.

<-- This particular image was chosen to be on the verso side of a 500 franc note with King Leopold II on the front, issued by the National Bank of Belgium (1952-1967)
