About: The Medieval character of Sandys’ wood engravings is based on his appreciation and study of the work of northern Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528), specifically his "Melencholia I." This scene illustrates a poem with religious overtones by Dinah Maria Mulock in which a young woman contemplates her life and faith.
