Madonna on a Crescent

c. 1520
Wood
Szépművészeti Múzeum, Budapest

This unpainted figure is from the Lower Rhine region. It belonged to an altarpiece in the middle of which probably stood a Madonna. It was executed by an artist from the circle of Ludwig Jupan of Marburg. This master's oeuvre are characterized by carefully balanced works that attest to excellent workshop practice.
