MEDIEVAL SCULPTOR, German
(active in 1400-1420)

St Peter

1400-20
Stone
Cathedral, Regensburg

The dominant style in South Germany at the beginning of the 15th century carried on the grace and prettiness of the 14th century, slighly humanized, but nevertheless of the greatest lyrical charm. A typical expression is seen in the elaborate play of the folds of drapery of this St Peter statue on the west façade of Regensburg Cathedral.
