COCK, Hieronymus. After Mathijs COCK

Abraham and Isaac.

Antwerp, Hieronymus Cock, 1551

Etching, 24,3 x 34 cm, laid paper, signed and dated in the plate "H.Cock.Fe.1551" (trimmed to borderline, sm. brown spot near Abraham's hand, sm. tear at upper right edge).

Loose sheet under passe-partout, fine dark impression.

Rare print of a landscape with Abraham about to sacrifice his son Isaac. A lamb is trapped in the bushes on the right-hand corner. The etching is one of the earliest prints published by Cock's Aux Quatres Vents, probably made after the landscape drawings by his brother Mathijs Cock. First and only state.
