Collection Description

Biographical Note

Augustin Hirschvogel (1503-1553) was an artist and cartographer from Nuremberg, Germany. His father, Viet Hirschvogel (1461-1525) was a glass painter and trained Augustin in this craft. He became known for his etchings which he began producing after moving to Vienna, Austria. He produced around 300 etchings from 1543 to 1553 wherein he pioneered the use of copper over iron plates. The subject matter of his etchings ranges from biblical scenes, to landscapes, to coat-of-arms, to portraiture work.

The Concordantz Alt und News Testament was produced between 1547 and 1549, and published in 1550. It was first published in folio format. The images accompanied verses written by the Hungarian aristocrat and reformer, Péter Perényi (1502-1548). The Pitts Thoelogy Library copy contains 92 of the 106 prints that were originally issued in this work. Four of these prints are from a later edition. Photocopies of the missing pages have been supplied.
