The glory of St Lawrence, surrounded by angels, two angels above him with a crown, two angels at his left with a grill.
Etching made by Cornelis Schut.
This seems to be a 'contre-epreuve'
A counter proof is made by running a fresh printed engraving with a blank sheet on top. The sheet wil take a faint reverse image that is in the same direction of the drawing. It will allow the engraver to make adjustments to the engraved lines to follow more closely the drawing
