The Presentation Of Jesus To Simeon In The Temple

c1506. Engraving, replica of Durer’s monogram, and number “II” in plate lower left and centre, 29.3 x 21.1cm. Pinholes, minor tears, creases and stains to margins.

Second state of two. From Dürer’s series The Life of the Virgin. Held in V&A.

Albrecht Dürer was reported to have been enraged by Marcantonio Raimondi’s “copying” his compositions and misleading use of his monogram. Dürer won a court case in Venice against Raimondi, which only prevented him from using Dürer’s name and monogram. Prior to the court case Raimondi was said to have sold his copies of Dürer’s series Life of the Virgin as original work by the master. Ref: Witcombe, Copyright in the Renaissance…, Boston, 2004.
