Hope (Hoffnung), from The Seven Virtues, in Holzschnitte alter Meister gedruckt von den Originalstöcken der Sammlung Derschau im besitz des Staatlichen Kupferstich-kabinetts zu Berlin
Not on view
From the 1922 publication in four volumes by Max Friedlander with impressions from wood blocks previously in the collection of Baron Hans Albrecht von Derschau. Derschau is said to have discovered hundreds of original wood blocks by German masters in a trunk in Nuremberg, and in 1808 Rudolph Zacharias Becker produced the first of three volumes with restrikes from these blocks. This print, however, comes from the 1922 series of impressions, made after the collection entered into the Kupferstichkabinett in the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
