Description historique:

One of seven works from The Liberal Arts series, this work addresses the topic of Dialectic. Appearing as a partially nude, winged woman standing nobly with scales in one hand and a rolled parchment in the other, Dialectic refers to discussion and reasoning by dialogue as a method of intellectual investigation. As one of the most logical and systematic forms of problem resolution, Beham perhaps saw it fit to include balanced scales within the imagery for Dialectic. A larger engraving than he is typically recognized for, this piece is nonetheless instilled with incredible detail as we witness Beham's intricate line work that conveys a sense of tonal contrast as well as depth and perspective. Dialectic stands in a contrapposto pose with her weight shifted to one side, her face turned in profile. Other works in this series address Grammar, Rhetoric, Arithmetic, Music, Geometry, and Astrology.

This original engraving is monogrammed in the lower right 'HSB.'

Hans Sebald Beham biographie

Beham (1500 - 1550) was born into a family of artists in Nuremberg in 1500 and is the older brother of Barthel Beham. Best known as a prolific printmaker, he produced approximately 252 engravings, 18 etchings and 1,500 woodcuts, including woodcut book illustrations. He worked extensively on tiny, highly detailed, engravings (many as small as postage stamps) placing him in the German printmaking school known as the "Little Masters" from the size of their prints. These works he produced and published himself, whilst his much larger woodcuts were mostly commissioned work. The engravings found a ready market among German bourgeois collectors, but were not much seen in Italy. He also made prints for use as playing cards, wallpaper, coats of arms, and designs for other artists, including many for stained or painted glass.
