The Crucifixion with Four Angels, Martin Schongauer, Martin Schongauer, c. 1480 - c. 1485
Martin Schongauer is the greatest printmaker of the late Middle Ages. This recently discovered impression of his Crucifixion is one of his most beautiful and best-preserved works. Christ’s wasted body and face were cut in the copper plate in extremely fine lines. Mary, John and the four angels who catch His blood exhibit the same sensitivity and delicacy.
