Albrecht Dürer

Christ as the Man of Sorrows (title leaf of the “Small Passion”)


Bartsch 16; Meder 125 II; Schoch/Mende/Scherbaum 186 II.


Excellent, strong and even impression from the book edition of 1511 with the improved title in letterpress, the full illustration, and text in the top and bottom. With the Latin text on the reverse. – A pressure-related, horizontal crease. Small defects on the edges. A faint ink stain on the thigh of Christ. With an earlier mounting strip along the right edge on the reverse, otherwise in good condition. Rare!
