About this artwork
This colorful metalcut was removed from a 1480 missal printed by Bartholomew Gothan and Lucas Brandis in Magdeburg. That volume also included a Crucifixion and other images from the same anonymous artist’s set of large metalcuts, using the same separately cut border plate for each different center plate. That border, with the Evangelists in roundels at the corners, depicts a visionary cloudbank of a type also seen at the bottom of The Man of Sorrows still on its book board, which likely came from another missal, given its size.
