The Lord’s Prayer – Vater Unser
This extraordinary series of handcolored copperplate engravings from the early 19th Century (probably circa 1830) illustrate the Lord’s Prayer (in German: Vater Unser) by accompanying it by a moral story easy to comprehend for people living during a time when conflicts were raging across the continent of Europe.
These rare and beautiful prints come from the estate of the well known Swiss collector of Kaspar Christen.
They were published in Nuernberg by Fr. Campe.
