This Woodcut is signed in the plate with Durer's monogram.
It is one of the works in the series "The Life of the Virgin" (Marienleben).
Our impression is a print without the text of 1580.
There are several pencil inscriptions verso.
The work is also stamped (verso) with the stamp of the Wagner Museums, Wurzburg (stamp registered in Lugt as reference 2541c). The work was once part of the collection of the Martin von Wagner Museum but was sold as the collection included another impression of this print.
