After Schongauer of the German school, come Israel Von Mencken and A. Stockenden, the first represented by "The Death of the Virgin" and "Judith with the Head of Holofernes"--both very fine impressions--and the second by "Christ before Pilate" and "La Descent aux Limbes." In all of these engravings, we see talent of a high order struggling with imperfect knowledge of what at the present day are considered the simplest artistic principles. The drawing is crude, and there is little knowledge of perspective or of light and shade. [Pp. 16-17 (supp.); see entry 01990008 for other work noted in this commentary.]
