A fine old wood engraving dating to the sixteenth century, the title apparently "Saint Paul Giving a Letter to a Messenger" according to handwritten notes on the backing, which also relate that this is from the Biblia series. The artist HANS BROSAMER (circa 1506-1554) was born at Fulda in central Germany. He became known for his fine oil portraits, but also for his wood engravings and copper engravings, many produced for various editions of Luther's German Bible. This example appears to have been taken from one of those books, as typeface can be seen coming through from the reverse side. The print measures 4 1/4" by 5 7/8" with thread margins, recess mounted in a quality manner on silk. As framed the piece measures 14 1/4" by 11 1/4".
