The figures illustrating these works were executed by Dürer, on wood, in an admirable manner. Some authors have attempted to prove that Dürer did not execute any of his engravings on wood. Zani and Bartsch are decidedly of this opinion, and give reasons to show that only the designs were Dürer’s, and that the mechanical operation of cutting was entrusted to skillful workmen in that line.

In 1515 Holbein made a series of marginal drawings to In Praise of Folly by Erasmus. ” The illustrations were marvels of invention and rapid execution, wittily done with free, easy pen strokes. Where the text mentions the author, Holbein has given us a portrait of Erasmus in his study.
