About this artwork

Meditations on mortality and Germany’s art historical past come together in Quaglio’s evocative view of Johannisfriedhof, the graveyard that served the imperial city of Nuremberg in the 16th century. Albrecht Dürer, a major German Romantic idol, was the most famous artist interred there. The monumental crucifixion group was designed by the Nuremberg sculptor Adam Kraft in 1506/08 and may already have been relocated to the medieval hospital, the Heilig-Geist-Spital, at the time this print was made.
