CORT, Cornelis
(1533-36 – 1578):

The Fight between the Horatii and the Curatii,after Frans Floris

Engraving, ca. 1550-1570. Riggs (Hieronymus Cock) 84; Graven Images, (1993) 15; New Hollstein 193

A very fine impression of this excessively rare print. Flaws in the plate show in all impressions known to us, and were doubtless the reason for only a small number being issued. Trimmed to the image on three sides, a 1mm. lack along the upper edge skilfully made up. Several invisibly-repaired tears, thin spots, a small inconspicuous touched patch, generally very intact for so large a print. 319 x 414-420mm (the plate is larger at the top than the bottom)
$6,500
