Print

Figure de Levangeliste Sainct Matthieu

This is an original 16th century wood engraving of St Matthew the Apostle writing the first gospel. Image size 11 7/8 x 17 1/2, margins trimmed to image, artist unknown, on an early watermarked laid type paper. We believe this impression was printed in the 16th century due to the 'hand' or 'glove' watermark in the paper.
