DOUVERMAN, Hendrick
(b. ca. 1490, d. ca. 1543, Kalkar)

St Ursula

c. 1520
Oak, height 93 cm
Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

The statue of St Ursula is stylistically close to Douverman's masterpiece, the Kalkar Altarpiece. Originally the statue was given a colourful finish, which was probably leached off in the 19th century to conform to contemporary taste.
