1415 The Descent from the Cross or La descente de la Croix.

 

Print: Baxter - CL 236 - Taken from the famous picture by Rubens.

 

It sold in Roman Catholic countries in large numbers including France hence the title in French can be found on some mounts. Not a rare print but quite hard to find in good condition as, presumably, most copies were prominently displayed and hence faded in the direct sunlight.

 

The print was produced from a plate and fourteen blocks and is said by a number of writers as being Baxter’s greatest work.

 

Sold originally at 3s.

 

Date: 1852

 

Size (cm ht x w): 18.5 x 14

 

State: Unmounted

 

Condition: Very good colours, slightly trimmed but I have seen other copies, trimmed the same size on stamped mounts so...

The Descent from the Cross or La descente de la Croix.
