[after Joachim Sandrart, c.1680]
Etching, platemark 330 x 220mm (13 x 8¾"). Trimmed to platemark on right.
Plate from 'Sculpturae veteris admiranda [...]' (1680), a partial translation of 'Academia todesca della architectura, scultura & pittura' by Joachim Sandrart (1606-88). Sandrart was a prominent German painter now also regarded as one of the most important German writers on art, and the 'Academia', which dealt with ancient to contemporary art, remains the most important historical source on artists such as Elsheimer and Grunewald. Most of the etchings were made after Sandrart's own designs.
