The Crucifixion Woodcut by Martin Schongauer is one of the earliest examples of Venetian Book Illustration printing; the block was first used in OCTAVIANUS SCOUT'S ROMAN MISSAL of 31st August, 1482 (CR 4190). Copies of this edition exist both with and without music printing, which was done outside Arrivabene's shop, probably by Benali. Depicted here are 4 Angels receiving the blood of Christ on the Cross. Second half of 15th Century. Framed with exquisite matting and glass. Size with frame 16" x 13", woodcut alone 7.5" x 5.5". Good overall condition.
