About the Work

The two extremely rare engravings of the Apostles Philipp and Bartholomew (33625) are from an apostle series possibly produced as early as the 1440s and only partially extant today. The engraver went about his work in the manner of a pen drawing, with deep contours and scratched-in clusters of lines for the shadows serving to model the shapes. He characterized his apostles with eloquent, lifelike details, for example Bartholomew’s well-worn shoes.
