Historical Description of this artwork
Full of intense emotion and highly detailed figures, this work expresses the anguish and somber nature of this scene. Bundele captures the sense of mourning as each figure appears pained in his or her own way. Intricate detailed lines convey this scene, as we witness the moment when Christ is just removed from the cross, slumping down in a near lifeless state. Bundele echoes Durer's composition with much skill. Though depicted in reverse, the image includes each slight detail such as the ladder leaned against the tree, the town in the distant background, and the holes in Christ's feet.
This work is a copy in mirror image by Bundele created after the original engraving by Albrecht Dürer (Nuremburg, 1471- Nuremburg, 1528). This etching is monogrammed and dated with Albrecht Dürer's (Nuremburg, 1471- Nuremburg, 1528) signature initials in the plate 'AD' on a slate in the lower right.

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.
