Single Leaf from a Short Work on the Passion of Christ


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This leaf, created in southern Germany ca. 1475, contains illustrations to the Sext and None segments of De Septem Stationibus Passionis Christi. This anonymous text, written in rhymed verse, was often appended to the Speculum Humanae Salvationis, which may have ultimately been the context for this leaf. The effect of the images, written and illuminated on paper with heavy ink outlines and washes of color, closely resembles that of colored woodcuts from the same period.
