16th Century Italian Engraving: Marcantonio Raimondi After Albrecht Dürer For Sale
ORIGINAL 16th Century Italian Engraving Albrecht Dürer's work famously plagiarized by Marcantonio RaimondiThe Print:[Italian 16th century Engraving] JESUS TAKING LEAVE OF HIS MOTHER , plate 16 from: The Life of the Virgin. Marcantonio Raimondi (Italian, Argini (?) ca. 1480–before 1534 Bologna (?)) After Albrecht Dürer (German, Nuremberg 1471–1528 Nuremberg) Date: ca. 1500–1534. On laid paper.29.5 x 21.5 cm., corners tipped down to larger paper, crease to middle. "Marcantonio Raimondi, from Bologna, was the best copyist of Dürer's graphic prints in Italy, and worked faster than any other; he was also the most damaging to Dürer's own business. In all, his workshop produced copies of eight engravings and over 60 woodcuts by the Nuremberg master, and to Dürer's great annoyance they came on the art market as genuine. According to Vasari, Raimondi had acquired his models in the Piazza di San Marco in Venice." copyright infringement forced Dürer to issue one of the most formidable warnings of thr 16th century in the 1511 colophon of the Life of the Virgin: "Hold! You crafty ones, strangers to work, and pilferers of other men’s brains. Think not rashly to lay your thievish hands upon my works. Beware! Know you not that I have a grant from the most glorious Emperor Maximillian, that not one throughout the imperial dominion shall be allowed to print or sell fictitious imitations of these engravings? Listen! And bear in mind that if you do so, through spite or through covetousness, not only will your goods be confiscated, but your bodies also placed in mortal danger."
