Transcript The Story of Nuremberg from the Cross to his ardent worshipper. There the countenance of St. Bernard is made to exhibit a depth of feeling rarely to be found in Wolgemut : as if tlu artist's imagination had indeed been lit by something of the glow ot the Saint's adoration. The St. Christopher, who is walking through the stream with the Christ-child on hll shoulder, is rough to the po ugliness, whilst in the landscape, which U beautifully tW there is a most intimate charm. In the martyrdom of St. Sebastian, the Saint wears that inane expression which often does duty, however unintentionally, for the look of deep suffering in Wolgemut's work. The guard, however, are pleasingly and vividly portrayed. Evidently they are akin to the rabble which is found in the scenes of the Passion in Schongauer's works. But it is when we come to the scenes from the legend of St. Vitus that we seem to trace only the faintest signs of Wolgemut's style. The composition here bears only a resemblance to his, and in the execution the assistant employed must surely have been he who painted the scene of St. Vitus denouncing the idols in the Lorenzkirche see p. 254 . and whose initials are R. F.
