    We are grateful to Dr. Bernd Konrad for pointing out this painting originates from the town of Constance and for dating it to circa 1510-15. The female figures of the Nothelfertafel can be compared to a fresco in the Rosgartenmuseum, Constance, depicting Amazons in civil contemporary costumes and hairstyle (see: B. Konrad, Rosgartenmuseum Konstanz. Die Kunstwerke des Mittelalters, Constance, 1993, p. 123ff, ill.).

    Provenance

    Dr. Paul Anselm Franz Beck (1845-1915); thence by descent to the present family members.
