Transcript The Story of Nuremberg triforium consists only of a row of low, pointed openings supported by short pillars, variously ornamented. The east choir (i 361-1377) is a building of the same period as the Frauenkirche. Compared with the rest of the church its dimensions are a good deal exaggerated. Nor is it placed symmetrically as regards the axis of the older part; for it inclines considerably to the north. Regarded in itself, however, it must be admitted to be a splendid building, the lofty and airy effect of which is greatly enhanced by the single row of tall windows. The light streams in through beautiful stained glass. The windows, however, are really too tall in proportion to their breadth (50 feet by 8). The mullions, too, nearly 40 feet in height, are more interesting as triumphs of masonic skill than admirable as features of architectural design. Contenting ourselves with these general observations as to the building itself, we will here add a list of the principal objects of art which will catch the attention of the visitor to the church. In the Loffelholz Chapel stands conspicuous the highly decorated bronze font wherein the Emperor Wenzel was baptized (1361, see p. 42). At the base are statuettes of the four Evangelists. It is said to be the oldest existing product of the Nuremberg foundries. The altar-piece in memory of Kunigunde Wilhelm Loffelholz (1453) is by an unknown painter. Scenes from the life of St. Catherine are depicted on a plain gold background. It is the earliest Nuremberg work to show any trace of the Netherland influence : but, unfortunately, it has been painted over at least once. There are three other pictures in this chapel, of an earlier date, by unknown artists. The two-winged Haller Altar-piece ( N. near the Anschreibethiire) may very likely be an early work of the Master of the High Altar-piece in the Frauenkirche. 236
