About the Work

The two apostles stand beneath a Gothic baldachin, between their heads a printed lower-case “e”. Sometimes upper case, replaced by an “S”, or combined with the latter, this letter also appears in other engravings from the late phase of the master not known by name. The earliest markings on engravings known to art history, they are interpreted as his monogram and he is referred to accordingly as the “Master ES”.
