A rare edition engraving of Albrecht Dürer (German, 1471–1528) Abduction of Proserpine on a Unicorn. Matted in a cream colored linen mat and framed in a beautiful Art Nouveau gold washed carved wood period frame, the etching measures approximately fourteen and one half inches by seventeen inches overall. The image measures approximately eight inches by eleven inches. There is no foxing present, but there is a small stain under the Unicorn's hooves on the bottom left. Overall it is in excellent antique condition.

From Albrecht Durer, "His engravings and woodcuts, by Frederick Stokes, NY:

Between 1507 and 1511 Dürer worked on some of his most celebrated paintings: Adam and Eve (1507), The Martyrdom of the Ten Thousand (1508, for Frederick the Wise), Virgin with the Iris (1508), the altarpiece Assumption of the Virgin (1509, for Jacob Heller of Frankfurt), and Adoration of the Trinity (1511, for Matthaeus Landauer). During this period he also completed two woodcut series, the Great Passion and the Life of the Virgin, both published in 1511 together with a second edition of the Apocalypse series. The post-Venetian woodcuts show Dürer's development of chiaroscuro modelling effects, creating a mid-tone throughout the print to which the highlights and shadows can be contrasted.
