German or Netherlandish
engravings; each ca. 45/46 x 35/36 mm
C.G. Boerner, Neue Lagerliste 79, 1983, no. 3
The dense, deeply engraved and richly printed lines give those two miniature-like prints the appearance of metal cuts. This is most noticeable in the beads of the rosary surrounding the Virgin which are in essence defined by white lines on a dark fond.
Superb impressions in very good condition with small margins all round.
