Description: HANS LAUTENSACK
Christ and the Canaanite Woman.

Etching, 1559. 153x217 mm; 6x8 1/2 inches. Second state (of 2). A very good impression of this extremely scarce etching.

Lautensack (1524-circa 1560) was among the earliest printmakers to create pure landscape etchings. He carried on a landscape etching legacy initiated by Albrecht Altdorfer from some 30 years earlier (see lot 50), culminating in some of the finest, most fluid landscape prints of the 16th century, before the theme was taken up again by Rembrandt in the 1640s. Lautensack's etchings often contain Biblical subjects, such as this scene of Christ with his disciples and the Canaanite woman kneeling before them, which are ancillary to the greater landscape views of the compositions as a whole. Bartsch 48.
