Master E.S.

( fl c. 1450–1467).

German engraver and draughtsman. He is named after the initials on what are now recognized as the first known engravings with a monogram. About 318 engravings, the earliest from c. 1450, the latest dated 1466 and 1467, are attributed to him, although his work is estimated to have originally comprised about 500 engravings. Of the surviving engravings, 95 are unica; for many only two or three impressions exist. After Israhel van Meckenem, he was the most productive engraver of the 15th century.
