Landscape with the Cannon.

Etching, 1518. 217x321 mm; 8 3/8x12 5/8 inches. A very, richly-inked, dark Meder II c impression after only the initial rust marks, with strong contrasts and little to no sign of wear (Meder dates impressions with II c characteristics, after the rust marks begin to appear on the iron etching plate, but before the profusion of rust marks and the significant rust marks on the chest of the Turkish figure in the center foreground, from the mid-1500s). Trimmed on the plate mark. Bartsch 99; Meder 96.
