Christmas 2015 Woodcuts of Albrecht Dürer’s – Malta

Christmas 2015 Woodcuts

The Malta Christmas stamp features woodcuts of Albrecht Dürer’s series Life of the Virgin which date back to 1500.

Specialist craftsmen like Dürer would engrave images on a wood block leaving the remaining image raised on the face of the block. Finally, this would be inked with a roller and a print would be drawn.

The prints, titled ‘The Flight into Egypt’, ‘The Nativity of the Lord’ and ‘The Adoration of the Magi’, feature on the stamps.

These artworks can be found at the Cathedral Museum in Mdina along with other works of Dürer. They were donated to the museum by the Markezi family in the 1700s.
