Cranach, The Death of St. John

The Death of St. John

Woodcut, ca. 1512, 164 x 128 mm., Bartsch 40, Dodgson 94, from The Martyrdom of the Twelve Apostles. Provenance: William Bell Scott (Lugt 2607);Viola & Remig Papp (not in Lugt). A fine proof impression before any large gaps or losses in the borderline and without text verso, on thin laid paper with small margins. St. John the Evangelist and Apostle was not martyred as were the other apostles. According to legend, when he had grown old and infirm, he officiated at a last mass and then descended into a prepared grave behind the altar to remain there until the last years before the second coming. Cranach shows him descending the steps from the ornately decorated altar as the acolyte extinguishes the last candle and the women of the congregation kneel in prayer. A beautiful composition and the print exceedingly rare in this quality.
