"The history of European master prints starts in the 15th century, almost simultaneously in different countries. But while the reasons of its emergence were everywhere the same, its development took different paths. The role of master prints in the art also varied from country to country. In Germany it was sometimes more important than anything else: every major German artist (with the exception of Grünewald) created engravings or woodcuts. That is why it was here that the art of engraving and woodcutting reached an incredible technical and artistic perfection. The master prints together with the painting defined the style of the German Renaissance." - from MASTER PRINTS IN 15TH-CENTURY GERMANY: EMERGENCE AND DEVELOPMENT (G. KISLYKH)
