German Masters from 15th and early 16th Century - Woodcuts

Albrecht Dürer                Hans Schaufelein               Lucas Cranach            Bernhard von Breidenbach  

The art history of engraving can not been imagined without the impact of Dürer and the other members of the early German school.
Right out of the middle ages they brought this art field to unknown heights. Prints from the period are rare to find. With my online catalogue I'm glad to offer some of the finest artists from the period.
