Transcript The Story of Nuremberg angels in bronze bearing the candles are by Burg- schmiet (b. 1796). Anton Tucher dedicated the Angels' Greeting and also the great bronze chandelier, which may contain the handiwork of both Veit Stoss and Peter Vischer. The handsome modern pulpit is by Rotermundt and Heideloff ( 1 ^»39)- There is also in the choir some beautiful tapestry (1375?) with figures of the twelve apostles who stand in a scrollwork of wise sayings for our instruction, such as Pis. maister. deiner. zung. dez. ist. dir. not. oder. si. werdint. dir. den. ewigen. dot., and so forth. The Church of St. Lawrence is rich in examples of the memorial tablets or epitaphs on which the skill of the early painters was chiefly exercised. The altar-pieces and epitaphs founded in memory of some member or another of the great burgher families form a complete gallery of early Nuremberg art and provide moreover a perfect feast for the enthusiastic herald. We have already spoken of the general tendencies of the Nuremberg artists in the seventh chapter of this little book. Perhaps, therefore, the most interesting way to treat of the pictures in St. Lawrence's will be to mention them in chronological order. 1. Epitaph of Paul Stromer, 1406—next the Rochus Altar, on west wall of the Sacristy. The Redeemer throned on the clouds, surrounded by angels bearing the instruments of the Passion. SS. Mary and John kneel in intercession before Him, and underneath is the familv of the founder. The drawing throughout is strong but severe, and there is considerable harshness in the contours. 2. Epitaph of Frau Kunigunde Kunz Rymensny- derin, 1409. Body of Christ supported by SS. M and John. Figures of the founders on either side of the napkin. 3. Wolfgang's Altar (1416?). Resurrection of 248
