    Pre-Lot Text

    Circuit judge and national historian Dr. Paul Beck (Altshausen 1845-1915 Ravensburg) built up an important collection of medieval paintings at the end of the 19th century. This collection included the so-called Ulmer Hochaltar, a significant example of Swabian art from circa 1400, which is conserved in the Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart. This work was, alongside a group of three rosary paintings (lots 65-66), acquired by Beck from the collection of dean Dr. Dursch in Rottweil in 1881. We are grateful to Dr. Bernd Konrad for his help in cataloguing lots 65-69 from this collection.
