Albrecht Dürer ~ 1471-1528

Up Catalog

     In 1971 Malawi issued a set of 8 stamps showing two Dürer woodcuts. Only two stamps are shown because they are repeated on the other 6 stamps.

Christ on the Cross

      Although the text on the stamps indicates that the woodcut is a part of the Small Passion, it is, in fact, a separate woodcut done in 1510 of Christ on the Cross with the Virgin and St. John. The copy in the British Museum in London heads a sheet with a poem, also by Düreri in two columns, printed by Hötzel at Nuremberg.
