As the inscription along the right indicates, Beham created this print as a memorial to the Peasants' War that had occurred nineteen years earlier, a series of violent revolts in which 100,000 peasants were killed. While the Beham brothers often depicted peasants in a satirical way, these two, identified as "Farmer Concz" and "Klos Swineherd," are quite finely rendered.
Donor: Felix Moritz Warburg, and his family
The Metropolitan Museum of Art. "The Print in the North".
