Historical Description of this artwork

Capturing the tragedy of Christ's crucifixion, Durer depicts the aftermath in this scene of mourning and reverence. Bowing their heads in sadness, followers of Christ gently lay his lifeless body to rest. The engraved medium allows for a sense of detail and delicacy of line that the woodcut medium cannot provide. For this reason, we feel the immense sorrow and anguish of Christ's followers in this emotional and touching work.

This engraving is copy by a student or follower of Dürer created after the original woodcut by Albrecht Dürer (Nuremburg, 1471- Nuremburg, 1528).

 The School of Durer Biography

Albrecht Dürer (Nuremburg, 1471- Nuremburg, 1528) greatly influenced artists of succeeding generations, particularly in printmaking. His reputation, which spread far and wide across Europe through his prints, inspired other major artists such as Raphael (1483 – 1520), Titian (1477 – 1576), and Parmigianino (1503 – 1540), who later followed in Dürer’s footsteps and entered into collaborationswith printmakers to distribute their work beyond local regions.

Dürer’s prints greatly affected his German successors such as Hans Baldung Grien (1484 – 1545) and Albrecht Altdorfer (1480 – 1538), particularly the “Little Masters” who worked on a small scale but continued to depict Dürer’s themes. Many Italian engravers such as Giulio Campagnola (1482 – 1415), Christofano Robetta (1462 – 1534), Marcantonio Raimondi (1475 – 1534), and Agostino Veneziano (1490 – 1540) trained after Dürer, learning from and admiring his work. They often directly copied parts of his landscape backgrounds or the prints in their entirety in order to better their craft. Seen as a master printmaker and artistic inspiration, the School of Dürer emerged with works created in his masterful style by students and admirers alike.
