Provenance

Independent print dealers Susan Schulman and Carolyn Bullard purchased this print at Phillip’s London in 1990. Dr. Lewis Coulson purchased the DürerP from them in a one-time only partnership in thirds with Lino Mannocci, artist and print historian, in 1991. So it has not been on the market in about 28 years. Dr. Lewis Coulson, Chicago sold it back to Susan Schulman and Carolyn Bullard in 2018.
