ALBRECHT DÜRER, Nuremberg 1471 – 1528 Nuremberg. St George on Horseback. Original engraving, 1505-08. This print is for sale, priced at £10,000

ALBRECHT DÜRER
Nuremberg 1471 – 1528 Nuremberg

Whereas Dürer’s woodcuts were aimed at a more popular market and are mainly Biblical in subject, his engravings on copper were directed at a more sophisticated audience and many of them have classical or secular themes, or such associations even when with a religious content.

St George on Horseback
Bartsch 54, Boon & Scheller 56
109 x 84
Original engraving, 1505-08.
The plate monogrammed and dated.
A fine impression with thread margins, trimmed to or just outside the platemark.

£10,000

With a faint blue unidentified collector’s mark in the top right corner, possibly that of the sculptor Ernst-Théophile Delvaulx (Lugt.2667).

The date on this engraving shows a correction from 1505 to 1508. Evidently, it was almost completed and dated before the artist's sudden departure for Venice in 1505 to escape the plague in Nuremberg, and completed and the date amended, after his return.

The engraving is one of a number of works depicting horses that Dürer made in the first years of the sixteenth century.

MANUEL ROBBE, Paris 1872 – 1936 Nesles-la-Vallée. Un nouveu Morceau de Musique, A new Piece of Music. Original colour aquatint, 1903. This print is for sale, priced at £1850

MANUEL ROBBE
Paris 1872 – 1936 Nesles-la-Vallée

As an artist an epitome of La Belle Epoque, Robbe trained at the Académie Julian and the Académie des Beaux Arts in Paris.

He was a dedicated printmaker, at first in colour lithography but after 1895, when he discovered aquatint, he devoted himself to that process. He used pure aquatint in the sugar technique, working with a brush directly onto the copper for a painterly result. His plates were printed à la poupée, whereby all the colours are applied to the plate in a single inking.

From its founding in 1905 he exhibited regularly at the Société de la Gravure Originale en Couleurs at the Georges Petit Gallery in Paris.
