Rosand and Muraro 40. A very good, dark impression of this extremely scarce, early woodcut, with strong contrasts. In fine condition, aside from what appears to be a block break across the center of the image, typical of many impressions of this print. Also with slight re-drawing in ink at the borders and in a few discreet areas. Sheet measures 11 1/2 x 16 1/2 inches.
