The Holy Kinship with the Lute-Playing Angels.

Woodcut, 1511. 213x215 mm; 8 3/8x8 1/2 inches, wide margins. A superb, dark, richly-inked Meder a-b impression, before the cracks in the borderline and in the last "1" in the date upper center, with very strong contrasts, little to no sign of wear and the relief from the wood block distinct on the verso, consistent with the earliest impressions of this subject. Ex-collection Waldburg Wolfegg'sches Kupferstichkabinett (Lugt 2542, verso). Bartsch 97; Meder 216.
