Description — Click to read

This is a beautiful, rare proof impression of one of the most dramatic prints from Dürer’s Life of the Virgin series. In the foreground, there is the Virgin Mary and St. Elizabeth, both expectant and here meeting in front of the house of Zacharias. The sunlit, mountainous background seems to rise to the heavens themselves.
