Description: MASTER AG (ALBRECHT GLOCKENDON) (after Schongauer)
The Fifth Foolish Virgin.

Engraving, circa 1480-90. 117x81 mm; 4 5/8x3 1/4 inches. Ex-collection Albert van Loock (Lugt 3751, verso). A superb, richly-inked and early impression of this very scarce engraving, with strong contrasts and no sign of wear, consistent with the earliest impressions.

The four impressions of this subject cited by Lehrs are weak and the Albertina impression illustrated in The Illustrated Bartsch appears weak too. We have not found another impression at auction in the past 30 years. Bartsch 27; Lehrs 30.
