Count Henrij de Moens from the Netherlands is depicted in a copper engraving, printed on silk. Some printers specialized in this trade. They catered mainly for people wanting to commemorate a person or an event in a special way. It is probable that de Moens's portrait would have been printed on paper, with a small extra edition of silk prints for close relatives or friends.
