This is rare illustration of a Rhinoceros engrave by Enea Vico, an Italian artist in 1548. It was based on an even earlier woodcut known as "Dürer's Rhinoceros" by the German painter and printmaker, Albrecht Dürer in 1515. What is interesting about this is that Dürer had ever seen a real rhinoceros. The woodcut show hard armor plates with rivets along the seams, twisted horn and scaly legs, none of which is anatomically correct. Still, it was popular and regarded as realistic into the late 18th century. It is now said "probably no animal picture has exerted such a profound influence on the arts".

We feel it's important that our art prints look the way the artists originally intended, with crisp, pleasing rich colors (not faded or murky like some other reprints). Each of our original images is professionally restored before printing. Our art prints are handcrafted in the USA after you order. Each one is digitally printed on heavy 216 gsm acidfree art paper, FSC certified (sustainable forests) and contains recycled paper. Then it is matted with a genuine Berkshire antique white mat plus backing board and assembled in a cellophane sleeve for protection.

All matted prints are shipped fully assembled between sturdy corrugated cardboard shipping pads. This means your art print arrives flat (instead of curled) and is ready to use right out of the box. Your print will arrive safe or we will replace it.

Shipping is via USPS with delivery confirmation for a flat fee of $4.50 regardless of size or quantity, anywhere in the USA. Expedited shipping is available upon request. Please message us for an estimated quote.
