St Jerome in the Wilderness, Albrecht Dürer, 1512

St Jerome in the Wilderness, Albrecht Dürer, 1512

drypoint, h 211mm × w 183mm More details

This depiction was made by incising lines directly into a metal plate with an etching needle. This technique yields only a small number of perfect impressions. The St Jerome was therefore considered a rarity even in Dürer’s own lifetime. To meet demand for it, publishers brought copies on the market: at least five different copies of this print are known.
