- Curator's comments
- One out of four subjects from the life of Christ, by Bartholmeus.
Printed on the same sheet as Schr. No. 2228, with an interval of 12 mm between them. The other two subjects (Schr. Nos. 2216-7) are registered as 1895,0915.173-4.
Dodgson notes that the composition of this cut is identical with another woodcut (Schr. 151), which is part of a series signed "Peter Mäler ze Vlme" (cf. Prints in the Dotted Manner and other Metalcuts of the XV Century in the Department of Prints and Drawings, London 1937, No. 45).
The engraver is not otherwise known, but the dialect of the inscription on the first print allows the attribution to the Lower Rhine as the place of origin, Schreiber suggests Cologne. He further notes that the name Bartholmeus was frequent on the Rhine, between Frankfurt and Maastricht. Ornamental punches used in the series are a fleur-de-lys (on Schr. 2216), a six-rayed star with a black centre (on the present cut and on Schr. 2218), and a small eye-shaped ornament with black centre in all four prints.
