Pierre et Jean arrivent au tombeau de Christ

Reference:
Mauquoy-Hendrickx 2106
Alvin 1785

After paintings of Bernardo Passari.
Publisher: Martinus Nuntius (1593)
Author: Hieronymus Natalis, S.J. 1507-1580, one of the first ten members of the Society of Jesus



...One of the major projects in the engraving history of the 16th century was the Natalis bible. It is considered not only as a monument of the 16th century's book illustration but also as one of the greatest achievements of the Flemish graphical art (Delen page 101). These engravings testimony of the virtuoso engraving style of the Wierix school. A turning point of the copper engraving in favour to the woodcut.


Latin title: "Evangelicae historiae imagines ex ordine Evangeliorum, quae toto anno in missae sacrificio recitantur, in ordinem temporis vitae Christi digestae" Antwerp, 1593.

Ignatius Loyola suggested to his friend Jerome Nadal to commission a series of engravings that would do for religion what the scientific illustrations of the day were doing for scientists
