MASTER of the Housebook
(active 1475-90 in Mainz)

Carrying the Cross

Drypoint, 127 x 181 mm
Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

The Carrying the Cross is one of this master's most ambitious prints. It is placed in a broad landscape with a frieze of figures moving diagonally from the left to the foreground right. However, the organization of the figures is cramped and uneven.
