Early German Prints

An iconographic access to all the German prints described by Adam von Bartsch with four additional volumes on German Single-Leaf Woodcuts

Early German Prints (ca. 1460 – 1600) belong to the most interesting fields in Art History, especially from an iconographic point of view. Artists like Martin Schongauer, Albrecht Dürer and the Beham brothers created a wealth of beautiful prints that enormously influenced the Visual Arts in Europe.
That German prints are important for art-historical research goes without saying. However, as usual, most works are only accessible by the name of the artist. An art historian (or cultural historian) searching for a specific iconographic entity is forced to do a great deal of cumbersome and time-consuming research.

FOLEOR Publishers is pleased to announce the publication of a new series of iconographic reference works that will largely solve this problem, the:

ICONCLASS Indexes: Early German Prints

In his magisterial Le Peintre-Graveur (volumes VI to X), Adam von Bartsch describes more than 7,000 German prints. The prints are reproduced in the late Walter Strauss’s The Illustrated Bartsch, volumes 8 – 23. Thus, the indices on Early German prints are of special importance to those institutes and museums that have a copy of The Illustrated Bartsch at their disposal.

The Iconclass Indexes: Early German Prints provide full iconographic access to the works of art dealt with, thus not only referring to main subjects, but also to many interesting details that may easily be overlooked by the researcher. The Iconclass Indexes: Early German Prints are an indispensable reference tool for all those who are interested in German art and culture of the 15th and 16th centuries.

The index volumes have been compiled by Fritz Laupichler, documentalist of art history and long-time Iconclass indexer at the Bildarchiv Foto Marburg (University of Marburg; Germany), in cooperation with Roelof van Straten, Dutch iconographer and Iconclass specialist.
