Leonhard Beck was one of the artists who worked on Emperor Maximilian’s numerous projects illustrating his life and his family history. Our image is one of 123 woodcuts of individual Saints- all in Renaissance settings, which Leonard Beck executed for the Genealogy of Maximilian I between 1516 and 1518, but which was not published until much later.
