Transcript German Museum length (p. 249;. No. 95—from the Frauenkirche—is an important picture of the same date (1430-40). The workshop of PleydenwurfF and Wolgemut is very well represented here. The admirable portrait of Kanonikus Schdnl . whose figure appears again in the Cruci fixion (100) painted for him by the master, and SS. Thomas Aquinas and Dominicus (102. 103) are good examples of PleydenwurfTat his best. Of the numerous pictures by 1 Wolgemut it will suffice to mention in particular the two portraits of old men so full of individuality Hans Perck- r and another, 119, H9A),and the Hallersche Epitaph 115 , besides his masterpiece, the Peringsdore*er Altar-piece (107-110, Room 73; 113 and 114, Room 71, SS. Cosmos Damian, Magdalena. and Lucia). We have seen how Wolgemut usually allowed his assistants to help him in his pictures. The Peringsdorfler masterpiece (1488) was no exception ; but in this at any rate the master's own share was rable. outer sides of the altar contain four pairs of Saints. male and female, standing on Gothic brackets—SS. Catherine and Barbara, Rosalia and Margaret, George and Sebald, John the Baptist and Nicholas. Here we have the most animated of Wolgemut's female figures, the most vigorous and life-like of his men. The most notable faces,—finer even than that of the aid who stands like some great architect holding the model of his Church, or of the St. Nicholas, with his refined and critical countenance, are those of SS. John and George. The former turns upon us his keen and spiritual gaze, so that his great brown eyes seem to pierce the veil that bounds our earthly vision and to penetrate into the hidden depths of futurity ; whilst the latter stands rigid, his every feature— powerful nose, firmly closed mouth, thin but not sunken cheeks—eloquent of a bold and earnest resolution. Incidents from the life of St. Vitus (Veit and other saints form the subjects of the inner sides of the picture. Here again there is an inequality both of style and of excellence. imple countenance of Mary, who holds on her knee a very animated Child, represents a type halfway between that of Rogier and that of Schongauer The St. Luke, the charac- >se head is well worked out, is attractive through his expression ot -s. But there is far more dramatic power and "soul" in the scene from the legend of St. Bernard, according to which Christ came down 287
