Harrowing of Hell, late 18th century
Engraving on paper
8 1/2 x 10 9/16 in. (215.9 x 268.29 mm)
Strauss, Dürer and His Circle (University of California Riverside, 1981).
Mantegna prints never have a date physically on them. This is a copy of Mantegna, made to make Mantegna more available to the public.
The engraving showing “Christ Descent into Hell” (image attached) is a fairly modern copy after Mantegna’s print. It must have been made before 1811 since it is already described by Bartsch in his “Peintre-Graveur”, vol. 13, Vienna 1811, p. 243 no. 2 at the end of the Mantegna section under “addition”. Pomona’s impression is very light and therefore considerably later. (Armin Kunz, 4/20/2022)
