Lot Essay

We are grateful to Mr. Ludwig Meyer for the attribution. He compares the triptych with the work of the Master of the Crucifixion, who is thought to have lived in Vienna and was a follower of the Master of the Schotten Altar II. The central panel of the present triptych has some stylistic similarities with an altarpiece by the Master of the Crucifixion in the Augustiner-Chorherrenstift Gallery at St. Florian, near Linz (A. Stange, Deutsche Malerei der Gothik, XI, Munich/Berlin, 1961, pl. 94).
