The Passion: The Raising of Lazarus, before 1508. Creator: Urs I Graf (Swiss, c. 1485-1527/29) Featured Print

The Passion: The Raising of Lazarus, before 1508. Creator: Urs I Graf (Swiss, c. 1485-1527/29)

The Passion: The Raising of Lazarus, before 1508. The first woodcuts appeared in Europe at the end of the 14th century but were relatively rare until the early 15th century. By the 1430s thousands of woodcuts were available with simple, crude designs and were used as playing cards or as devotional images. Inexpensive, they were readily purchased at fairs, markets, and pilgrimage sites. Following the tradition of manuscript illumination, woodcuts were often hand-coloured with watercolour, a quicker and cheaper process than printing with colour.
