Description

Original woodcut from the first edition of Dürer's Small Passion published in 1511.
Latin text verso.
Monogrammed in the woodblock 'AD bottom left.

From the expulsion of man from the Garden of Eden to the final judgment of an ascendant Christ, Albrecht Dürer’s breathtaking Small Passion, widely considered the old master’s magnum opus, has moved viewers for over half a millennium.

Dürer's woodcuts for the Small Passion are of remarkable quality and finesse and while the paper may display some minor signs of age after more than five centuries, we feel that the durability of Dürer's iconography necessitates that the woodcuts be displayed in their original condition; to that end the sheets have been neither cleaned nor restored in any way.

Custom made, hand gilded frame with museum quality mount and non-reflective glazing.
