Click image to zoom old map image

Title : Dance of Death..
Map maker : SCHEDEL, H..
Date : Nuremberg, 12 July 1493.
Size : 17.7 x 12.2 inches. / 45.0 x 31.0 cm.
Colouring : In attractive colours.

Description :The Imago mortis or Dance of Death, has been described as one of the most powerful representations of German art (Stadler, 45). One of the most sought-after prints from the Nuremberg Chronicle , published the year that Columbus returned to Europe after discovering America. The text is a year-by-year account of notable events in world history from the creation down to the year of publication. The woodblock cutters were Michael Wohlgemut and his stepson, Wilhelm Pleydenwurff.
Wohlgemut was Albrecht Dürer's tutor between 1486-90 and it is likely that Dürer contributed to some of the woodblocks as several images in the Chronicle were to recur in his later work.
Portrayals of Death encountering people from all walks of life have appeared on church and cemetery wall-paintings, in the decorations of ecclesiastical architecture, and in illustrated manuscripts and books. ¤

Condition : Wood cut. On verso 14 lines of text in two columns. Some very minor age-toning and browning on the outer left hand margin. In very good condition.

ID: 03612
