Impressive chiaroscuro woodcut of Claudius Gothicus (Latin: Marcus Aurelius Valerius Claudius Augustus (Born May 10, 214 – Died January 270), also known as Claudius II. He was Roman emperor from 268 to 270. During his reign he fought successfully against the Alemanni and decisively defeated the Goths at the Battle of Naissus.

By Hubert Goltzius from his well-known series of "Fasti Consulares ac Triumphi"

The Clair Obscure woodcut is an invention dating from the early Renaissance. The portraits were printed with a black outline block and a tone block in brown tints.

This innovative form of early color printmaking was designed to imitate Renaissance wash drawings. The term." Chiaroscuro "(Italian, chiaro 'light' and oscuro 'darkness') was used to describe such prints because of the contrast between the highlights and the surrounding areas printed in related shades of color, with a black outline for emphasis.

The print with a diameter of 18 cm is in a circular cut professional acid free passe-partout for a perfect display. It has two cm margins around the image border and the original French text on the backside. Very good condition with a few spots on the hidden margins.

Guaranteed original from the 1559 publication and not from the later Jegher copy.
