Artist: Albrecht Dürer, 1471-1528
Title: Christ on the Mount of Olives
Date: circa 1509
Medium: Woodcut on laid paper
Signature: Signed in the block with the monogram
Description: A very strong impression, this work is astounding in its detailed execution and delicacy of line. With this work, Dürer conveys a heightened sense of emotion which is captured both with a prayerful Christ in the center as well as his sleeping disciples surrounding him. Created circa 1509, this early woodcut is from the series 'The Small Passion' printed on a fine laid paper. A fine dark lifetime proof impression before the Latin text edition with thread margins, this work is monogrammed in the woodblock 'AD' on a slate in the lower left.
