Unusually large detailed engraving, 31 1/4" by 20 1/8", laid down on board, of Christ coming down off the Cross, this example engraved by Nicolaus Dorigny (1657-1776), and possibly after Daniel Ricciarelli (1509-1566), in turn after a painting by Raphael. The work is dated 1720 at lower left. There's a lot of text in Latin at bottom, and a close look reveals the names of the two above artists. The print has gone evidently a long time without glass protection, so has acquired a few nicks and scrapes, the longest about 2" in the figure at left center holding Christ's body; two other obvious ones are at lower right edge above the text. There is a horizontal old center fold, and the entire work is laid down. I imagine these flaws could be minimized and a better frame would really bring out this work.
