About the Work

The Master AG must have spent time in the circle around Schongauer. He produced several finely and carefully executed copies of that master’s successful engravings. Among them is the series of 'Wise and Foolish Virgins' (33762–33771) and the depiction of 'Christ Enthroned' seen here. Flanked by angels drawing a curtain aside, the Redeemer performs a gesture of blessing. This engraving may have formed a cycle in combination with the 'Virgins': the 'Wise' to Christ’s right and the 'Foolish' to his left.
