JOHANNES WIERICX (after Dürer)
Adam and Eve.

Engraving, 1566. 245x192 mm; 9 3/4x7 5/8 inches. Trimmed on the plate mark. A superb, dark and richly-inked impression of this scarce engraving with very strong contrasts.

Wiericx (1549-1620), an artistic prodigy from a family of engravers, made several ambitious copies of famous Dürer engravings during his teens and at the beginning of a productive artistic career. Mauquoy-Hendrickx 54.
