Friday Faves: Keegan Goepfert presents a Gothic Coffret with a woodcut of Saint Veronica’s Vernicle

May 15, 2020

While over 140 Gothic coffret prints survive today, most of these woodcuts were created in Paris by the atelier of the French artist Jean d’Ypres. This impression is one of the few coffret woodcuts known to originate outside of Paris. This coffret contains a rare print of Saint Veronica by Hans Burgkmair the Elder of Augsburg with hand-stenciled coloring from a Parisian workshop.
