Extremely rare small engraving by Jacob Binck, who belonged to the group of so-called "Kleinmeister". He made copies after Dürer and Schongauer but also produced a small oeuvre of genre- and ornamental prints. Binck also worked as an art agent and portraitist for the King of Denmark and Albrecht of Brandenburg. Only 5 copies of this print are registered in public art collections today. 1st and only state.
