A fabulous plate of the highest quality in large folio depicting Christ on the cross. It was lithographed by Strixner after Johann Mabuse and J. Bergmann. Johann Nepomuk Strixner (1782-1855) was one of the best early lithographers in Germany. He started out around 1808 and became specialized in depicting old art in lithography. He was a big contributor to the work "Les Oeuvres Lithographiques" published in Munich 1811-1816. When the present lithograph was printed in 1830 he had developed his art to a stunning level of perfection. It was published for the monumental work "Die Sammlung alt-Nieder und ober deutcher Gemälde" issued in parts 1821-1836 in Munich and Stuttgart.
