        On the shield, Schongauer's monogram "M + 8" is engraved.
  • Curator's comments

    The engraving is not listed in Lehrs, but as a note on the mount indicates, the print is a companion to Lehrs 217 and 218, and is referred to in Max Geisberg, 'Geschichte der deutschen Kunst vor Dürer', Berlin 1939, p. 175. The print was retouched in all likelihood by van Meckenem, who added Schongauer's monogram.
