JOHANNES WIERICX (after Dürer) Knight, Death and the Devil.
Engraving, 1564. 248x190 mm; 9 3/4x7 1/2 inches. Second state (of 5), before the address lower right. Eagle (?) in a circle watermark. Trimmed on the plate mark. A very good, dark and richly-inked impression of this scarce engraving.
After the same-titled engraving by Dürer (Bartsch 98). The prodigious Wiericx (1549-circa 1618), from a family of Antwerp and Brussels printmakers, made this engraving at just 15, as the inscription "Æ 15" in the plate upper left attests. Mauquoy-Hendrickx 1484.
