Martin Lewis did not do a lot of self-portraits, two are recorded in prints and a handful of drawings. In this drypoint he shows himself in his printmaking studio, light diffuser so he can see what he is doing on the copper plate, engraving tools showing in the distance and a magnifying glass to see the details in the plate he is working on.

The drypoint is very rare.Signed in pencil.
