DIE HOLZSCHNITTE DES GEORG PENCZ.
by Röttinger, Heinrich
First edition. The German Renaissance painter and engraver, Georg Pencz (c.1500-1550) was active in Nuremberg and was probably part of Dürer's workshop. Pencz's style was heavily influenced by his two trips to Italy, the first coming early in his career. The fine, crisp style of his paintings in particular reflect his admiration of his peer's work south of the Alps. Pencz is remembered primarily for his small-scale copperplate engravings making him part of a group of artists dubbed the "Little Masters." This book, however, focuses on his woodcuts. Introductory chapters followed by a detailed listing of publications with his works. Heavily illustrated in text in addition to a section of plates at the back, which show a broad range of subject matter and scale. Works include portrait medallions, emblems, pastoral scenes, mythological and Biblical figures and scenes, arabesques, multiple sheet prints and a number of hand colored prints. Memorial bookplate on front pastedown indicates that this copy came from the H.P. Kraus reference library and stock. Cloth split along hinges.
