Description

Exploring one of the outstanding artists of the late Middle Ages, this guide presents the accomplishments of the anonymous architect and sculptor known as the Naumburg Master. The volume focuses on the subject within his cultural environment and describes his work and influences in detail. The Naumburg Cathedral--renowned as the artist's masterpiece and the source of his moniker--is examined along with the architecture and art of the cathedral's West Choir, an elegant collection of 12 monumental stained glass donor portraits. Illustrating the master's characteristic reevaluation of the individual as well as his artistic background, this account also presents a striking portrait of the cultural landscape surrounding the Naumburg region during the artist's era.show more
