Quick Overview

Woodcut, very good condition


Albrecht Durer (1471-1528), Ascension Day, Italian Edition, 1612 Italian text on the back. Meder 159, Italian Edition, 1612 Bartch 50 From the famous 'Little Passion' of Albrecht Durer. Cut on the margins but complete, very good dark impression. The later subjects are less printed than the early subjets, which results in good black and white nuances. At the right, you see some part of a watermark, probably an anchor. Christ is going to heaven, in the company of his mother and his apostles. The hill he is leaving from, has the form of the planet earth, where you still can see his footprints.
