Durer Reproductions: The Engraved Passion: Bearing The Cross - Fine Art Prints

The Engraved Passion - Christ Bearing the Cross, 1512

ExpandedSize Reproduction: 8 x 5 inches

This reproduction is a new, individually printed and proofed, superior quality, giclee* process, fine art print.

It is printed on 100% cotton rag acid-free, heavyweight fine art paper with a luxurious textured watercolor paper finish and archival pigment inks to ensure permanence.

Created for collectors, itIS NOT A POSTERor mass produced print on low quality, inexpensive paper.

Albrecht Durer(1471-1528) was the leading artist of the Northern Renaissance and the greatest printmaker in the history of western art. A prolific draftsman, he elevated the aesthetic quality of printmaking and put it on equal terms with the drawings and paintings of the Italian Renaissance. Artists across Europe admired and copied Dürer's innovative and powerful prints. His copperplate engravings of Knight, Death, and the Devil, Adam and Eve, Melencolia I and the woodcut of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are still universally acclaimed today.

Technically, Dürer's prints are exemplary for their detail and precision. The son of a goldsmith, Dürer was trained as a metalworker at a young age. He applied the same meticulous, exacting methods required in this delicate work to his woodcuts and engravings.

The Engraved Passion was a series of 16 small plates of almost identical size, 4.5 x 3 inches, created over a period of six years from 1507 to 1513. They are regarded as some of Dürer's finest work in the graphic medium. These individual engravings are striking examples of the artist’s meticulous observation of detail and genius in reproducing them in copperplate engravings.

This print is expanded to the slightly larger size of 8 x 5 inches to allow a fuller appreciation of the rich detail of this small masterpiece engraving.

Durer worked on the Engraved Passion from 1507 to 1513, selling many of the sheets individually. Art historians have suggested that Durer had very different audience in mind from that of his Small Woodcut Passion when he executed the series.No text was considered included or necessary since Durer conceived it not as an edifying book but rather as a collector’s item, to be relished by the art lover instead of by the devout. The series stresses Christ’s spiritual suffering rather than physical torture and never loses sight of his dignity as he endures the pain and suffering. GiorgioVasari, Renaissance artist and biographer of calls these engravings "the ultimate in perfection and quality attainable in the medium as regards beauty, variety of vestments, and composition.”
