The Dresden Kupferstich-Kabinett (Collection of Prints, Drawings and Photographs) possesses an unusual wealth of works from the beginning of print graphics until 1520/30. Among them are many rare or even unique sheets. Particularly famous is the collection of early German engravings which were researched and published by the expert and researcher Max Lehrs in his multi-volume catalogue “Geschichte und kritischer Katalog des deutschen, niederländischen und französischen Kupferstichs im 15. Jahrhundert” (1908–1934). For the first time two collection catalogues shed light on early Italian engravings as well as on early Dutch engravings and woodcuts, which for the most part were subsumed by Lehrs under the German works.
