Description

Description

View of Jerusalem (detail), from Journey to the Holy Land (La Peregrination en Terre Sainte). Written by Bernhard von Breydenbach (German, 1440?-?1497). Hand-colored engraving, 1488.

Our print was reproduced from the earliest illustrated printed book that recounts a Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The book was the work of Bernhard von Breydenbach, a German cleric and nobleman, who set out for Jerusalem in 1483, accompanied by an artist named Erhard Reuwich to illustrate the journey; he then published his book using the new technology of printing. An enormous success, the book was available in six languages by 1500, and Reuwich's image of Jerusalem established a standard for European artists who sought to capture its distinctive topography. This stunning framed print is taken from a five-page foldout in the book that shows Jerusalem with the Dome of the Rock at its center.
