DAVID KANDEL
1565 - FENUGREEK by Kandel for Bock's Herbal - Hand colour woodcut
Strasbourg, 1565. No Binding, 12.4 x 8.1 inches. Livre, SINGLE LEAF. One woodcut in fine hand colour by David Kandel. FENUGREEK - Trigonella foenum-graecum. 1 woodcut in hand colour. Strong impression. German text. / David Kandel was one of the earliest and greatest pioneers of botanical art. His beautifully rendered images opened the eyes of many as to the wonderful varieties of plant life. Yet, as is the case with many Renaissance artists, surprisingly little is known of his life. David Kandel was the son of a Strasburg citizen and was probably born in that city. We know he was married in 1554 and owned a house in 1587. His activities as a woodcut artist are varied. He designed several portraits, some Biblical scenes, animal studies, topographical views and a number of valuable, early maps. His greatest works, however, are his botanical woodcuts, and of these, nothing surpasses his work for the Kreuterbuch of Hieronymus Bock. This woodcut originates from this tremendous 1546 study, which critically examined a large number of herbs, plants and trees, drawing upon recent investigations and theories by medieval and ancient writers. The most outstanding feature of the Kreuterbuch was the 550 woodcuts designed by David Kandel. The superb artistry and accuracy of these woodcuts set new standards for botanical art. Kandel's woodcut of the Cappes Kraut (the cabbage) is a prime example of his highly prized art. The foliage, flowers and even the root systems are all handled with the combination of detail and delicacy which is unique to the great era of the Renaissance woodcut. / Condition: Browning with spotting & some marginal staining to leaf. Fold to lower left corner, otherwise little minor marginal faults. Otherwise, in very good condition. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Very good condition.
