About

Macharius of Alexandra hermit is a beautiful black and white etching and burin (on copper) on ivory-colored and hand laid (verge) paper, realized at the end of XVI century by the Flemish artist Joan or Johannes Sadeler (Brussels, 1550 - Venice 1600). Signed on plate "Sadl. ex." on the lower left corner. With a long inscription on plate on lower margin: " Alter Alexandrinus erat Macharius: illi Sanctorum studio discere gesta fuit atque duos reperit vitrei prope fluminis undam inter silvestres tuto habitare feras". In excellent condition, except for a minor stain on higher left coner and a usual yellowing of the paper due to the age. A beautiful wooden frame included, cm 25.4 x 1 x 29.3 This old master's original print with a lifetime impression and with a full mastery of this artistic medium, is from "Sylvae sacrae monumenta anachoretarum" published in 1590. Reference: Hollstein: J. Sadeler I Johannes Sadeler comes from one of the most renowned family of Flemish engravers, active in the 16th and 17th century. The best known is Gillis (Antwerp 1570 - Prague 1629), who stayed in Munich (1590, 1594) and in Rome (1593); from 1600 was active at the court of Prague. He was influenced by H. Goltzius; and made engravings of sacred and secular subjects, portraits, landscapes. Jan or Johannnes (Brussels 1550 - Venice 1600) was in Munich as a court engraver (1588-95) and then in Italy. He left prints of various subjects (series of the Seven Planets, 1585). We should also mention his brother Raphael (Antwerp around 1560 - Munich around 1628). This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
