A fabulous plate of the highest quality in large folio. Lithographed after a print by Israel von Meckenem by Johann Nepomuk Strixner (1782-1855), one of the best early lithographers in Germany who started out around 1808. He 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 1822 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. Isreal von Meckenem (c.1445 - 1503) was one of the great print makers of the rennaisance, known to depict himself in some of his images. A famous print of the late 1400s of him and his wife is probably the first self-portrait in a print.
