These two are 9x12.

I have been looking at books on Rembrandt's drawings.  His drawings are like the words of Jesus.  At one time at least 1400 drawings were accepted as Rembrandts, but over the years,  many have been thrown out so that there may be now 800 drawings (and shrinking) considered original Rembrandts.   There must be many, many lost and destroyed drawings by Rembrandt.  In his bankruptcy sale, there is listed a folder titled "best drawings".   Imagine what that contained.
