Albrecht Durer (1471 -1528) - The birth of the virgin

Description
Albrecht Durer (1471 -1528) - The birth of the virgin
Gravure sur bois - Signé sur impression - Circa 1503-4

An original Albrecht Dürer Woodcut print. It is printed on laid-paper with a watermark (see photos 13 and 14) which looks like a two-headed eagle with a five-petal flower. This watermark indicates that this print was made in 1596-1600.

The setting of this "Birth of the virgin" print is a typical German interior of the 16th century depicting women being busy with the tasks related to child birth.


CONDITION: There is a visible fraying of the margins and there are a few tears that affect also the printed area. For example, on the right lower end of the print there are two major tears: 2 and 4 cm. Furthermore the print has been folded in and along the fold there is some thinning of paper visible. The condition is best depicted by the photos 12-18.
