HANS BALDUNG GRIEN
Group of Seven Wild Horses.

Woodcut, 1534. 218x320 mm; 8 5/8x12 5/8 inches, thread margins. Small indiscernible circular or orb watermark. A superb, well-inked impression of this extremely scarce woodcut with strong contrasts and little to no sign of wear, consistent with the earliest impressions of this subject.
We have found only 5 other impressions at auction in the past 30 years. Bartsch 58; Hollstein 240; Mende 79.
