The article deals with the study of two graphic versions of the “Triumphal Procession” of the emperor Maximilian I Habsburg, preserved as a number of miniatures and woodcuts. Miniatures and woodcuts were compared with each other and with the text of the program of the “Triumph”, written by Maximilian I. This comparison became the base for reconstruction of the stages of the work on the cycles. Amendments introduced into the program while it had been created were revealed. The early stages of the work are characterized by interest to genealogy of the Habsburg family, aft erwards in the process of work special attention was paid to developing the theme of the military successes of the Holy Roman Empire. The relationship between the miniatures and woodcuts is discussed in the article. The “Triumphal Procession” is compared with other parts of Maximilian’s art project, aimed at immortalizing his glory, that helps to precise the datings.
