About the Work

The Städel owns four panels of the work which gave this anonymous master his name; the others are in the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart. In closed condition, the large, winged altarpiece showed scenes of Christ’s Passion, and after its first opening, images from the life of the Virgin, among them the Frankfurt panels. The second opening revealed the sculpture shrine. The luminous colours and the dramatic depths of the perspectivally rendered space were typical of painting in Ulm around 1500. The same applies to the elongated figures with their somewhat stereotypical faces.
