Portrait of a Woman, after Bernhard Strigel

Various artists/makers

Not on view

When Jacquemart made this etching as part of a portfolio of prints celebrating the founding collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the painting he interpreted was thought to be by Lucas Cranach, the younger. It has been reattributed since to Bernard Strigel (71.34). The black and white of the etching emphasizes the delicate details of the brocade in the sitter’s dress and background to a greater degree than the painting.
