EGELL, Johann Paul
(b. 1691, Mannheim, d. 1752, Mannheim)

Deposition

1740s
Limewood, 45 x 28 cm
Liebighaus, Frankfurt

The small Deposition relief reveals Egell's particular skill in sensitively uniting the various aspects of his artistic work as a sculptor, stuccoist, ivory-carver, and graphic artist. This is one of a whole series of small-scale reliefs conceived as devotional images.
