About the Work

The “Housebook Master” is the leading representative of a realistic style practised on the Middle Rhine in the late fifteenth century and reflecting Netherlandish influence. In ‘The Resurrection’ this realism is exemplified by the profoundly human depiction of the sleeping and waking guards, the anatomically correct representation of Christ’s torso and the background landscape with its vast depth created by aerial perspective. This panel was once the right-hand wing of a retable, probably from Speyer Cathedral; the central panel is now in the Augustinermuseum in Freiburg.
