RELIGIOUS WOODCUT ENGRAVING
This 400 year old woodcut is from Jean Leclerc's "FIGURES de la SAINCTE BIBLE" published by Le Clerc in Paris in 1614. Type is in French.
JEAN LECLERC (Le Clerc)
Leclerc (1550-1627) was the engraver as well as the publisher of this oustanding French late-Renaissance woodcuts. He was of the Venetian School and studied under the Old Master Carlo Saraceni and worked with Caravaggio. Leclerc became an Old Master himself with appretices such as Francois Vernier.
This is one of the earliest publications (400 YEARS OLD) to contain such a glorious collection of fine original Biblical woodcuts by a famous artist.
The engraving is in repaired condition, with usual age toning. Most of these woodcuts had tears and wormholes that have been repaired. The image is about 8 " x 6 " on a page that was about 13 " x 9 1/2 ".(text on back) but was trimmed close to the image line without loss of the engraving. (see picture). The engraving is suitable for framing and would make an excellent gift. It has been mounted to a fine heavy paper to make it easier to frame.
