Description: ALBRECHT DÜRER
St. Eustace.

Engraving, circa 1501. 356x262 mm; 14x10 1/4 inches. A good, well-inked and dark Meder h impression with contrasts; with scattered losses and restorations in pen and ink. Single-headed eaglewatermark (Meder 224, which he dates from the first quarter of the 1600s).

According to Bartsch and later cataloguers, the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II (1552-1612), renowned as a aptron of the arts and for his Kunstkammer (or cabinet of curiosities), owned the original copper plate for this engraving and had it gold-plated, then continued to have impressions printed from it for collectors during the early 1600s. Bartsch 57; Meder 60.
