This is an original 1907 halftone print of a piece by Venetian Renaissance artist Vittore Carpaccio (c. 1465-1525), who is best known his conservative, large-scale detachable wall-paintings, which were not as humanistic in nature as the work of his other Italian contemporaries. This harrowing composition is depicting the ten thousand martyrs on Mount Ararat who were killed for converting to Christianity.
