Hans Weiditz (1500-1536)

His work was often confused with Dürer and Burgkmair.

Full folio woodcut leaf.

Weiditz trained in Strasbourg and in 1518 he was a journeyman with Hans Burgkmair in Augsburg. Few drawings by him have survived; Weiditz's work fell quickly into obscurity owing to the fact that only two of his woodcuts are signed. Identification by Röttinger of Weiditz as the 'Petrarch Master', so called after the illustrations to that book.

Weiditz was not only the most versatile but the busiest of the illustrators of his time... and one of the little group of outstanding woodcut designers of the German Renaissance with a highly individualized style and a most personal outlook on life.

Excellent impression from the 'Trostspiegel' (this edition ca 1560), here in a fine strong impression.
