The Virgin Surrounded by Many Angels.
Woodcut, 1518. 302x216 mm; 12x8 1/2 inches, thread margins. A superb, dark and richly-inked Meder II a impression, with very strong contrasts and with the razor-thin, almost imperceptible break in the left wing of the child-like angel seated with the flower vase lower center, but otherwise with little to no sign of wear. Bartsch 101; Meder 211.
