This print is part of the V&A’s Medieval and Renaissance collection. Made in Nuremberg, Germany between 1520-1526 the print is engraved on paper. Although designed and executed by a German artist the subject matter of this print is Italian in origin.
The putti (small cherubs), a vase, and scrolling foliage are motifs looking back to the art and design of ancient Rome and are characteristic of Italian Renaissance art.
This print is very small - less than three centimetres high and eight centimetres long but even in such a small space the artist has created an image full of energy and a sense of movement.
