Jacob Lutma (died 1654) was a Dutch silver- and goldsmith, and a number of his etchings reflect this occupation. Jan Both (1618/22 – 1652) was a Dutch painter, draughtsperson and printmaker, and famous for his Italianate landscapes.
In very good condition, sheet overall a little browned, attached to carrier. An unidentified collector's mark (Lugt 2641b) stamped on the verso.
