  • Curator's comments

    Schreiber ascribes the print to a series of saints produced in the Upper Rhine. Dodgson notes that the similarity of the design rather links the print to Schreiber No. 2666.b, whose origin he attributes to the Lower Rhine. Cf. Prints in the Dotted Manner and other Metalcuts of the XV Century in the Department of Prints and Drawings, London 1937, No. 98.
