Burin - Signed on plate - 19th century with certificate of authenticity

Artist: da Albrecht Durer ( 1471-1528)
Title of artwork: "Il piccolo corriere" 1496
Year: XIX secolo con certificato d'autenticità
Technique: burin
Signature: Plate signed
Condition: In very good condition
Sold with frame: No
Image size: 107×77 mm
Total dimensions: 116×88×1 mm

Wonderful proof in counterpart made with burin imprinted on paper without watermark, dating from the first quarter of the 19th century, preserved in perfect condition.
Monogrammed on the plate on bottom centre.

The figure of the postillion only acquired its definitive form in the second half of the fifteenth century. Before then, the postal service was only the prerogative of government or ecclesiastical institutions and some very wealthy private individuals.
It was an Italian family that first established an international service with connections between the main cities of Europe.
As a good observer, Durer realised the importance of this service and decided to dedicate two works to it.
