252 x 315 mm. Sheet 255 x 319 mm.

A superb, brilliant impression in the first state, of one of the masterpieces of Goltzius as a printmaker. The exceptional richness of our impression makes visible the extraordinarily subtle, infinite gradations from light to deepest black. This effects are particularly visible in the dragon’s wings and tail. The print also shows some plate tone at the bottom left corner. With small, even margins, in fine condition.
