The resurrection of Christ, 1521.
From the famous Small passion of Christ, inspired after Albrecht Durer.
Albrecht Durer, the great master, has met Lucas van Leyden in 1521 in Antwerp.
He was so passionate about van Leyden's work that they exchanged engravings. Dürer drew Lucas’ portrait.
In 2011 was a very speciale exhibition in the Lakenhal in Leyden.
Catalogue: " Lucas van Leyden en de renaissance".
Lucas van Leyden is an autodidact, he didn't had a master who learned him the art of engraving.
He made even his own printing-press.
Many painters and engravers were inspired by his work, like Rembrandt, Hendrick Goltzius, Jan Harmensz Muller. ...
His engravings can compete with some of Albrecht Durer.
This series of the Small Passion is made in the year that they have met, 1521.
This is not after Dürer, but his own composition.
The engravings of Lucas van Leyden were always rare. Rembrandt was a great collector of it.
Most of the copper plates were sold to Maarten Peeters in Antwerp. So he printed them again with his adres engraved on it.
Maarten Peeters, Petri, (1500-1566) republished almost all the plates of Lucas van Leyden in 1533-1566 in Antwerp. (source British Museum).
Also these impressions were searched after in the 17th century.
