Not on view

Delacroix registered with the Print Room at the Bibliothèque Nationale as a student in 1816. There he gained access to not only old master prints, but also a wide variety of sources for the study of costume. This sheet is composed of simple outline tracings from the "Nuremberg Chronicle," an illustrated history of the Christian world published in 1493.
