Vintage Rhino Woodcut Print - Durer's Rhinoceros

Vintage Rhinoceros - Albrecht Durer's Rhino Woodcut

What a funny vintage rhinoceros in full armor! Albrecht Durer originally created the first woodcut of this mysterious rhino in 1515. This particular version was created by a later artist, Hieronymus Bock. It is commonly called "Durer's Rhinoceros" -- a wonderfully early view of how Europeans must have thought of such a strange and wondrous creature as the Indian Rhinoceros. Durer based the vintage rhino image on a written description and quick sketch from another early unknown artist, and never really saw the live rhino. This was the first example of a Rhino drawing in Europe since Roman times.

This vintage Rhino woodcut is wonderfully inaccurate; the hard plates resemble real armor, with a breastplate, rivets, and gorget that kind of look like a human knight's armor. The rhinoceros woodcut was copied by many other artists through the ages, and these inaccuracies were repeated through three centuries.

About This Vintage Rhino Print

This particular Rhino image was made in 1546 by artist Hieronymus Bock. Bock's Rhino engraving is characterized by a printing block that was broken, resulting in a horizontal line that runs across the later prints. This one is a color copy of the Bock Rhino, printed in the 1580 French edition of the Cosmographia, which attempted to eliminate the line by a process of overpainting.
