  • Standard Bearer and Drummer, 1544
    Hans Sebald Beham (German, 1500–1550)
    Engraving
    Gift of Felix M. Warburg and his Family, 1941 (41.1.90)

    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.
