A fabulous and rare 'pair' of early 16th century Southern German renaissance angels ; probably from Ulm c1520 . Polychromed oak.
A beautiful pair of angels created between 1500 and 1520 in Ulm, possibly a follower of Gregor Erhart (1470-1540). Ulm was one of the most important centres for Southern German sculpture at the time;it has a long and rich medieval history and heavily influenced high renaissance art . These beautifully proportioned angel heads were carved by one craftsman before being sent to a specialist painter with comparable skills to panel painters. Their combined high artistical and technical merit means they were probably commissioned for a private chapel.
