About the Work

This early and extremely rare engraving by Israhel van Meckenem is a copy after the Master ES. Especially in his early phase, Israhel copied a great number of that master’s engravings. The only distinct change he made here was the addition of the apostle’s name in beautifully ornate script. His aim in doing so was probably to make the print better understandable and thus more attractive for the potential buyer.
